Lecture 34 How does the technological advancement affect the per capita capital and per capita output in the steady state? Primitive Technology Advanced Technology
Lecture 35 Golden Rule for Saving and Capital Accumulation Kss Kg C-max
Lecture 36 Golden Rule of Saving

Lecture 38 Saving rate C-max = 1.25 Consumption s*=1.25 y=2.5 k = 25 y = 0.5*k 0.5 s1s2 s4 s5 How High Should be the Saving Rate? Saving Rate that Maximises Consumption
Lecture 315 Optimal Saving and Consumption in Two Period Model
Lecture 316 A Three Period Optimal Consumption-Saving Model
Lecture 317 Four Optimisation Conditions
