Unformatted text preview: Macroeconomics 1. Master APE. 2009-2010. TD7 Prof. Xavier Ragot / T.A : Eric Monnet The rst exercise of the problem set is a take home exam due November, November 17 . Since we will correct it together in class (some of you will present their results), papers must be handed at the beginning of the course. If you cannot attend class this Tuesday ; send me your results by email before class ! Work with another people and give me one paper for two . 1 Convergence in the neoclassical model and the 'augmented Solow model'. This problem is based on Mankiw, Romer and Weil, 1992, (available on the web- page of the course). It examines the derivation of the convergence equation you have derived in class, and studies the implications for the convergence hypothesis of the 'augmented Solow model'. Consider rst the traditional neoclassical model where output is given by Y t = ( A t L t ) α K 1- α t . The technology grows at rate x , the population at rate n , and the stock of capital depreciates at rate δ . There is a constant saving rate s . Thus we have in particular : ˙ K t = sY t- δK t , where ˙ K t = dK t /dt 1- Write the variables in terms of `e ciency units of labor', that is y t = Y t / ( A t L t ) and...
