A production function that defines income (y) as a function of productivity (A) and physical capital per worker (k): y = Ak and a capital accumulation equation: k = sy- ( d + n ) k (a) (5) Assuming that capital is paid its marginal product, show algebrically what share of income accrues to capital in this model?...
