If k* is such that f’(k*)=n+d (i.e. at Golden Rule Steady-State), and c* will decrease because of the change in s . d) Increase in technology, f 1 ( . ) > f0 ( . ), that is technology is better. This increases k*, y*, and c*. 2. a) Temporary adverse supply shock will shift FE to the left and LM to the left. Hence Emp (dec), Y (dec), r (inc), I (dec), C (dec), P (inc).
