Homework 6 (Due October 16) Questions 1-4 pertain to the version of life-cycle model with u ( c yt , c ot +1 ) = α ln c yt + (1 α ) ln c ot +1 and F ( A t , K t , L t ) = A t K β t L 1 β t . As in the Solow model, let y t denote the output per worker at t , so y t = A t k β t . (By de fi nition, k t is the capital per old person at the start of t , and it is also the capital per worker at t .) Here we set β = 0 . 5 . It is convenient to use Excel for computation. 1. Let α = 0 . 7 , A t = 10 all t , and k 0 = 1 . (1) Compute k t , for t from 0 to 5. Then compute the growth rate of k , for t from 1 to 5. (2) Compute the steady k and y . (As in the Solow model, in case A t is constant, if the economy is in the steady state at t , then k t = k t +1 . ) 2. Let α = 0 . 5 , A t = 10 all t , and k 0 = 1 . (1) Compute k t , for t from 0 to 5. Then compute the growth rate of k at t , for t from 1 to 5. (2) Compute the steady k and y . 3. Let α = 0 . 7 and A t = 10 × (1 . 01) t . (1) Let k 0 = 1 . Compute k t , for t from 0 to 5. Then compute the growth rate of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
