The function G is common to both sectors and is given by, G ( k st ,k et ,u t ,s t ) = k st h u t + (1- )( k et + (1- ) s t ) i 1- (5) Total output, in consumption units, is dened by, y t = c t + x st + x et q t = A t G ( k st ,k et ,u t ,s t ) (6) Note that this aggregation of output is possible when G is homogenous of degree 1 and common to both sectors. 1 1.
