Example text

This was followed by a discussion of production function growth theory. Evaluation of this theory traced its inability to model the historical record to three key features. First, although it is a longrun model, it fails to take account of the economy’s evolving structure. Second, its adherence to a steady-state, balanced growth approach prevents it from explaining historically observed growth patterns. Third, by assuming continuous full employment, it cannot explain lengthy periods of high unemployment.

8) With the capital–output ratio constant, the long-run growth rate of output depends upon the saving ratio, and in this sense growth is said to be endogenously determined. 8) it can be seen that any change in the saving ( ϭinvestment) ratio permanently alters the long-run growth rates of capital and output. The importance of the saving and investment ratios arises from there being constant returns to capital in endogenous growth theory. This is its key difference from neoclassical growth models.

But in their absence the system is either converging toward or moving along a full employment growth path. Therefore lapses from the full employment state would not necessarily undermine the explanatory value of full employment growth models provided that they are infrequent and short lived. 1 shows that when high unemployment has occurred it does not appear to be a random event, unrelated to earlier events. Historically, high rates of unemployment have occurred in episodes of considerable length, suggesting causal mechanisms that are sustaining high unemployment once it sets in.
