1. Suppose an earthquake

Question

b. For the case, where there are 2 steady states, show graphically how the transitional dynamics for this economy are. Namely, suppose you start to the left of the low steady state capital stock, what happens? What about to the right?

6. Suppose total National Savings, St, is St= sYt – hKt. The extra term -hKt reflects the idea that when wealth (as measured by the capital stock) is higher, savings is lower, (i.e., wealthier people have less need to save for the future). Assume that production is given by the Solow model without technological change. Solve algebraically for the steady state capital stock. Show graphically how the steady state capital stock compares for an economy with h= 0 and another with h0.
