Applied Economics, 28, His own work expands upon this by exploring the implications of alternative specifications, namely the Cobb-Douglass and the more general Constant Elasticity of Substitution.

Endogenous growth and cross-country income differences. A fallacy in causality research on growth and capital accumulation. This residual measures the exogenous increase in total factor productivity TFP during a particular time period. A contribution to the empirics of economic growth.
The neoclassical revival in growth economics: Paradoxically, even though TFP growth is exogenous in the model, it cannot be observed, so it can only be estimated in conjunction with the simultaneous estimate of the effect of capital accumulation on growth during a particular time period.
Classical and technological convergence: Variations in the effects of productivity[ edit ] In the Solow—Swan model the unexplained change in the growth of output after accounting for the effect of capital accumulation is called the Solow residual.
International Review of Applied Economics, 9 3 Economics Letters, 55, This convergence could be explained by: The weights used are usually based on the aggregate input shares either factor earns.
Taking Mankiw, Romer and Weil seriously. Estimating the convergence time of the European Union. Assumptions[ edit ] The key assumption of the neoclassical growth model is that capital is subject to diminishing returns in a closed economy.
European Economic Review, May, 45 Background[ edit ] The neo-classical model was an extension to the Harrod—Domar model that included a new term: Economics Letters, January, 74 2 Testing the neoclassical theory of economic growth.
The empirics of economic growth for OECD countries: NBER working paper no. Solow sees the fixed proportions production function as a "crucial assumption" to the instability results in the Harrod-Domar model. Key references Bernanke, Ben S.
Dowrick, Steve and Rogers, Mark IMF Staff Papers, 40, Firstly, the empirical growth model we adopt is a revised cross-country specification of the augmented Solow model which allows for cross-country differences in productivity growth as measured by structural change.
3 We find that the augmented Solow model predicts China's economic growth rate accurately, and there are four main determinants of China's relative success.
The Solow Model, also known as the neoclassical growth model or exogenous growth model is a neoclassical attempt created in the mid twentieth century, to explain long run economic growth by examining productivity, technological progress, capital accumulation and population growth.
Mapping the Model to Data Introduction Solow Growth Model and the Data Use Solow model or extensions to interpret both economic.
A CONTRIBUTION TO THE EMPIRICS OF ECONOMIC GROWTH* N. GREGORY MANKIW DAVID ROMER DAVID N. WEIL This paper examines whether the Solow growth model is consistent with the international variation in the standard of living.
It shows that an augmented Solow To test the augmented Solow model, we include a.
THE AUGMENTED SOLOW MODEL: A CRITICAL REAP-PRAISAL A maintained assumption in the neoclassical paradigm is constant g(2 percent) and random A’s (at least in expected terms) In the Augmented Solow model we can write growth (in the vicinity of steady state - see p.
