There needs to be perpetual shifts in z (technological advancement) to deliver perpetual growth in per-worker income. c.f. Malthus? Growth Accounting Solow (1957, ReStats). From the Solow-Swan model we know if Y is to grow over time there must be growth in inputs e.g. (K,N), or TFP, z . Assume economy-wide production function: Growth Accounting Typically = 0.36.

Using the following table, calculate the actual average annual growth rates during these two periods. 2) Consider the following production function Y = A1 K 1 3 L2 3 + A , does it exhibit increasing, constant or decreasing returns to scale in K and L?

In 2008 it doubles! The Power of Growth: Rule of 70 Economists use rule of 70 to compute how many years it takes for a GDP to double o 70/g number of years after which GDP doubles Going back to our example from the previous slide: 70/4=17.5 years (about right!) Ex of Power of growtho Between 1950-2004 average annual growth rate was: In Argentina less than 1% In Japan about 4.5% In US about 2.2% o These growth rates imply: Income in Japan doubles every 15 year, 30years in US and 70 in Argentina o In the long run it makes a huge difference Business Cycle Fluctuations Business cycles- fluctuations in real GDP around its long-term growth trend Phases of the business cycle o Expansion- a period of real GDP increasing faster than usual o Contraction- a period of real GDP increasing slower than usual o Recession- a fall ...

Growth (Ya) refers to the change in the yield over some period of time. The Annual Increment ()Ya ) is just the annual growth of the stand per unit of area at a given age. It is the difference between the yield at age a and the yield a year earlier, at age a-1. )Ya = Ya - Ya-1 The Periodic Annual Increment (PAIa1, a2) is the average annual increment per unit area over some period longer than one year. The PAI for ages a1 to a2 is: PAI a1 , a2 = Ya2 Ya1 a2 a1 Growth and Yield Concepts (continued.) The Mean Annual Increment (MAIa) is the average annual growth rate per unit area up to age a. It is calculated by dividing the yield at age a by the age: MAI a = Ya a The age where MAI is maximized is known as the Culmination of Mean Annual Increment or (CMAI) Managing on this rotation will maximize the average volume production of a given area over time. - For this ...
