(Spring 2009, Second Prelim, Question 1) Consider an economy with an aggre- gate production function: Y = AK 1 = 2 N 1 = 2 , depreciation is 10% , population growth is zero and workers save 1 4 of output. Productivity is constant and equal to one. (a) What is the steady state value of per capita output? (b) What is the steady state value of per capita consumption? (c) What is the steady state growth rate of per capita output? (d) What is the Golden Rule capital stock? (e) If A increases by 2% each year, what is the growth rate of steady state output per worker? (f) If A increases by 2% each year, what is the growth rate of the steady state capital per worker? 2. (Question Three from Abel et.al., Chapter 9, numerical problems) C d = 200+0 : 8 ( Y ° T ) ° 500 r , I d = 200 ° 500 r , M d P = 0 : 5 Y ° 250 ( r + ° e ) , M s = 9890 , T = 0 : 25 Y +20 , G = 196 , ° e = 10 , and the full employment output equal to Y = 1000 .

### What students are saying

• 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.
