Economic Representations: Academic and Everyday

Why is there this type of proliferation of financial discourses in literary thought, cultural stories, anti-sweatshop debates, well known song, and different parts outdoor the authentic self-discipline of economics?

Now if the technology exhibits constant returns to scale then results (i) and (ii) above, and also the extension of Ramsey's analysis of an optimal intertemporal savings program (with W = Wc ) to include positive subjective time preference together with population growth at a constant rate, both state that if k(t) > k * (where f'(k *) calls for a reduction in k(t) and vice-versa. = p) the optimal program This suggests: an 'over-developed' economy is one for which k(O) > k * and a 'less-developed' economy is one for which k(O) < k* • One of the purposes in the next section is to determine when an optimal program will transfer from a less-developed region to an over-developed region and vice-versa.

If Harrod-neutral technical progress is introduced into either of' the technologies considered above then later generations are assured high enough consumption rates even if population growth rates are high. Consequently large discount rates are required to ensure the existence of an optimum; in fact if the technology is of the constant returns to scale variety and f'(O) = m then no optimum exists for any finite discount rate. This is in sharp contrast to the results applicable when population grows at an exogenously given rate and the introduction of technical change weakens the conditions required for existence.

If K(O) =! the optimal program is If K(O)
