Schlicht, Ekkehart (19. Juni 2015): Directed Technical Change and Capital Deepening: A Reconsideration of Kaldor’s Technical Progress Function. Münchener Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Beiträge (VWL) 2015

Dies ist die neueste Version des Dokumentes.



This note proposes a growth model that is derived from the standard Solow growth model by replacing the neoclassical production function with Kaldor’s technical progress function while maintaining a marginalist theory of factor prices in the spirit suggested by von Weizsäcker (1966, 1966b). The hybrid model so obtained accounts for balanced growth in a way that appears less arbitrary than the Solow model, especially because it directly accounts for Harrod neutral technical change, without any need for further assumptions.
