ECN/APEC 6000/7230 Fall 2009 Homework 2 Solutions 1) a) On a balanced growth path, k ( t ) = k *, so r ( t ) = f ( k *) - δ for all t , so the rate of return is constant. The share of output paid to labor is . )) ( ( ))] ( ( ' ) ( )) ( ( )) ( ( ) ( ) ( ))] ( ( ' ) ( )) ( ( )[ ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( t k f t k f t k t k f t k f t L t A t k f t k t k f t L t A t Y t L t w - = - = Thus on a balanced growth path, , *) ( *) ( ' * 1 ) ( ) ( ) ( k f k f k t Y t L t w - = which is constant. The share of output going to capital is , *) ( *) ( ' * ) ( ) ( ) ( k f k f k t Y t K r = + which is also constant. The wage is w ( t ) = A ( t )[ f ( k *) - k * f ( k *)], which grows at g , the same rate as A ( t ). b) The wage is ))].
