Macroeconomics Theory and Policy Masoud Anjomshoa 1 Masoud Anjomshoa 1 Long Run: . Quarters Y - In the long run, - Money, price level, and nominal variables are ignored. The focus will be only on the real side of the economy. - To check the outcomes of the long run models, we use international data. Given the different sizes of countries, we use per person variables. -Any growth model should be able to explain: 1)- Why/How countries grow over time in the long run. 2)- Why their growth patterns are different.

Macroeconomics Theory and Policy Masoud Anjomshoa 2 Masoud Anjomshoa 3 Production Function: Y= F ( K , N Output Cobb-Douglas Production Function: Y = AK α N β Production function is a technological relation which relates levels of input factors to the maximum produced output. Technological progress is in form of a functional shift: Masoud Anjomshoa 4 Production Function: λ Y= F( λ K , λ N) Y= 2K 0.3 N 0.7 1- Constant Returns to Scale: 2- Diminishing Returns to Each Factor: K Y 1 2 3 4 Y = 2K 0.3 N 0.7 Î K = 0 Î K = 1 ÎÎ K = 2 K = 3 K = 4 0 Given fixed other factor, the extra output due to one more unit of any input increases, decreasingly.
