5 5 Solow Growth Model Production function with capital and labour as its inputs. Closed Economy without Government. Market clearing: Households Saving Decision: Investment requirement: Closure rule in the model: Dynamics: Capital accumulation: Firms Production Function

6 6 Per Capita Output and Per Capita Capital Stock in the Steady State 0.5ksks SST

7 7 Growth Accounting Take log of both sides: Differentiate with respect to time :

8 8 Capital Stock and output in the Steady State in the Solow Model with technical progress Fundamental equation of economic growth: Per Capita Effective Capital Stock in the Steady State: Per Capita Effective Output in the Steady State:

9 9 Results from the steady state: 1.Countries with higher saving rate have higher steady state level of output and countries with lower saving rate have lower level of output in the steady state. 2.Countries with higher level of technology have higher level of output and countries with lower level of technology have lower level of output in the steady state. 3.Countries with higher rate of population growth rate have lower level of output in the steady state. 4.Countries with higher capital share have higher output in the steady state. 5.Countries which differ in the initial capital stock eventually reach to the same output level in the steady state. 6.Growth of per capita income is zero in the steady state

12 12 How Human Capital Contributes to the Economic Growth?

13 13 How does the technological advancement affect the per capita capital and per capita output in the steady state? Primitive Technology Advanced Technology

17 17 Meaning of Convergence and Divergence A poor country should grow at faster rate than a rich country as it has higher marginal productivity of capital. Evidence from African Countries shows divergence.

19 19 Is this caused by the barriers to adopt a good technology? Or by Lauddites?

31 31 Stabilisation: Table 1

32 32 Macroeconomic Stabilisation Role of Tax and Spending Tax and Spending GG T T = tY Income YFYF G = T T > G Surplus in boom T < G Deficit in recession 0

33 33 Balanced Budget Multiplier with Lump-Sum Taxes. =1/(1-c 1 ) - c 1 /(1- c 1 ) = 1 The real national income is given by the IS Curve: Positive Government expenditure multiplier: Negative tax multiplier: The balanced budget multiplier: A change of 100 in both G and T also raised income by 100. Balanced change in G and T is not macro economically neutral.

34 34 Automatic Stabiliser with Proportional Taxes Consumption: Disposable income: Tax Revenue Income (IS curve):Y = c 0 + c 1 Y D + I + G The multiplier = 1/(1-c1+c1t1) <1/(1- c1), so the economy responds less to changes in autonomous spending when t1 is positive. High T when Y is high. Low T when Y is low.

35 35 How much should be the tax rate to maximise the government revenue ? Revenue R-max t-Rmaxt-Low tH Tax rate R-low Tax avoidance Tax evasion Revenue=F(t) Tax compliance

36 36 Laffer Curve Model:A Numerical Example

37 37 Debt Dynamics: Determinants of Debt/GDP Ratio Higher the interest rate causes a rise in B/Y Lower the growth rate of output causes a rise in B/Y Higher the current deficit (G -T) leads to higher B/Y Higher initial B/Y implies higher B/Y in subsequent years Example Debt ratio = 100% r = 3% g = 2% T-G = 1% is required to keep B/Y constant (5)

42 42 time t0 0 r i T An Increase in Money Supply Can Lower Real and Nominal Interest Rates in the Short but not in the Long Run Monetary policy can have some real effect in the short run but not in the long run. Short runs become shorter with more accurate expectations Fisher Equation

44 44 Financing an Investment Project Self Finance Bequests Bonds: Debt Finance Banks, Building Society, Insurance Equity Finance Stock Market (LSE) No Risk High Risk Maturity Instalment Method Repayment Method Financing of an Investment Project Demand for output Need for Capital Risks AAA BBB CCC

45 45 Market Price of a bond (console)

46 46 Price of a Stock: An example P Share = Price of a Stock D = expected Dividend r = interest rate g = growth rate of dividend x = risk premium D = 1000 and r =5% and g=3% has a risk x =0; If r =8%

47 47 Observations From the above Analysis of Stock Markets Lower the market interest rate, higher is the value of stock. Because future earnings are discounted at lower rate. Higher the growth rate of dividend higher the value of stock. As dividend grows earning from the share rises and hence price rise. Higher the risk premium lower is the value of the share. A decrease in the risk premium will increase the market value of a stock. Arbitrage implies same rate of risk adjusted returns in both stocks and bonds. (in the short run) Higher the resale value of the stock higher is its price.
