In this assignment you will:
1. Develop understanding of discrete-time Solow Growth Model. In particular, you will solve the model analytically for the steady-state and Golden-Rule steady-state levels of the key variables involved.
2. Explore the effect of a change in a policy parameter on the dynamics of the model by simulating time paths of key variables in an Excel Spreadsheet (use attached Excel file). This will help you to interpret transition dynamics and identify the difference between levels vs. growth effects.3. Read, analyse and interpret the main results of the academic research paper “A Contribution to the Empirics of Economic Growth” by Mankiw, Romer and Weil (1992). 
Part A: Analytical Work 

It is divided between labor and capital income according to their marginal productivity. That is to say, from; yt= F (Kt, AtLt) = Kαt (AtLt) 1-α

So, from St = It = sYt . By making everything into the per effective worker terms, we divide by AtLt:
We have, Kt+1 /At+1Lt+1 = s F (Kt, Lt)/AtLt AtLt/At+1Lt+1 + (1- α) Kt/AtL   AtLt/Bt+1Lt+1
Yt+1 = αK αt + (1- α) Kt/ {(1 + g) (1 + n) = φ (Kt)


At steady state, dkt+1 = 0, 
Now solving for the value of K gives: 
 To effectively check for the overall   stability of the steady sate, we need to check its limit if it is less than unity. That is to say; lim K as Kt tends to infinity should be less than one (Acemoglu  2009)
For output per worker
From the growth rate of output per worker, yt – Yt/ Lt in steady state is gives the following expression (Acemoglu 2009)
Yt/Lt = [Kαt (AtLt) 1-α]/Lt = (Kt/Lt) α At1-α = (Kt/AtLt) α At = KtαAt
Therefore, as the economy reaches the steady state then;
Ytss = KαBt
Now, from above we get;
yt+1ss/ytss – 1 = At+1/At – 1 =g. Similarly, by taking natural logs on both terms gives the following;
Logyt+1ss – log ytss – log At+1 – log At ≡ g 
The consumption per effective worker
Under the steady state, the consumption per effective worker is obtained from the general equation as (Acemoglu 2009); yt = ct + it, where it = syt and also ct = (1-s) yt. Therefore, in the steady state; 
Capital per worker at steady state is obtained from; Kt+1ss = Ktss = K. it implies that at steady state, yk = 0. Now getting the K from the expression of ykt gives (Noel and Mark 2017)
D)Therefore, the growth rate of output per worker is given as;  
Also from the capital per effective worker, Taking natural logs where Kt/Lt = AtKt , where the Kt = Kt/ (AtLt).Now defining the per capita stock of capital as kt =Kt / Lt:
It then gives;
Kt/Lt = kt = ktAt. By taking logarithms to get the growth rate of capital gives;
Log kt+1 – log kt = log At+1 – log At ≡ g(Noel and Mark 2017

E) The Golden –Rule Steady State

The value of at the golden rule in the steady state is the capital stock per worker which maximizes the consumption at the steady state (Haine etal 2006).  Therefore, from;
Ct = (1-s) yt = f (kt) –sf(kt).
It is believed that there is now way one can maximize consumption in all the states (Haine etal 2006). This is because consumption is a function of f (kt) that is not bounded (Haine, 2006). Therefore, with such a reason, a corner solution is only obtained as kt = 0 that is true when stationary points are obtained first. But the steady state condition is given as;
Sf (k) =k. Hence it is true for all steady states because ct = f(kt) – sf(Kt) in steady states (Halsmayer etal 2016).
In simple terms; c = f (k) – k. The maximization problem now becomes;
∂c/ ∂k = f’ (k) – 
Where y = Akα a closed form of solution for K’ can be obtained as’
f’ (k’) = αA(k’)α-1 = n +
k’ =1/(1-α)
And now consumption becomes; 
Unemployment in the Solow Model

The output per effective worker yt= Yt/Lt as the function of capital per effective worker Kt+1 = Kt/Lt and the natural rate of the unemployment u is obtained by dividing the total output by the number of workers (Haine etal 2006).

Therefore from; yt ≡ f (kt) = Ktα [(1-u) Lt] 1-α/(Lt)
This gives, kαt (1-u) 1-α
as the growth rate of output per effective worker. This unemployment will affect his economy in the way that the job separation rate s in this case will increase and there are high chances of losing the job (Haine etal 2006).
Part B: Computational Work

The value of y

?* = {0.2/ (0.02 + 0.025 + 0.05)} 1/ (1-0.33) = (2.11)1.5 = 3.064952
? = ?α = 3.0649521/3 = 1.452584
?t = s ?t = 0.2 *1.122497 = 0.224499
Ct = 1-0.2 (1.122497)
                   = 0.897992

Kold*= {0.12/(0.02 + 0.025 + 0.05)}1/(1-0.3333) = (1.26)5 = 1.414346 

C old = (1-sold) yt = 1-0.12 (1.122497) = 0.988
Kold ={0.12/(/(0.02 + 0.025 + 0.05)} 1/(1-0.3333) = 1.414346. therefore, yold becomes
Yold= ?α = 1.4143461/3 = 1.122497 
The line graph shows that there is no significant relationship between the three variables of kt, yt and ct. It is observed that from the data, there deviations from when time is o to time are 7. From that point there is no correlation as all the variables are kept constant (Halsmayer etal 2016)  

The new value are;

?* = {0.2/(0.02 + 0.025 + 0.05)}1/(1-0.33) = (2.11)1.5 = 3.064952
? = ?α = 3.0649521/3 = 1.452584
However, in the short run, consumption reduces with time as saving increases. This is explained since saving increases, this would imply that, consumption in the short run will also reduce and finally no consumption at all in the long run (Halsmayer etal 2016).

The impact of this policy in the short run is that, consumption is not affected but saving increases and capital ratio slightly falls. While in the long run, most of the variables are seen to change like the consumption which declines heavily and also capital ratio reduces as investment increases as a result of saving(Halsmayer et al 2016). 

From the graph above, there is not relationship between the variables as it is seen in the diagram above. According to most scholars, they believed that a change in saving rate only affects the consumption in the short run and long run(Halsmayer et al 2016). They stated that, all other variables are not heavily affected as they are independent from saving. Except only investment has a direct relationship with the change in the saving(Halsmayer et al 2016). 
Part C: A Contribution to the Empirics of Economic Growth. Solow Model with Human Capital

J) It is believed that the Solow Model is built upon the neoclassical dynamic model with the aggregate production function(Halsmayer et al 2016).

From the general equation as, Y (t) = [A (t), K (t), L (t)]………………………….1
Where the Y (t) is the aggregate output at time t, output is then presented as the function of the capital inputs (Halsmayer etal2016). From the same equation, the households have got capital that is available for renting to other individuals and firms which 
Where ?  presents the time derivatives. Firms under Solow aim at profit maximization.  Also from the Solow model, the neoclassical production is obtained from the Cobb Douglas functions as (Halsmayer et al 2016);
Y(t) = A(t)K(t)αL(t)1-α, that is to say; 0<α<1 where α is the output share paid to the capital while 1- α is the output share that is paid to the labor. When labor productivity is increased by the presence of technology, the function becomes; Y(t) = K(t)α(A(t)L(t))1-α…………………………………..3. Where A (t) L (t) is the labor effective. Then when A is expressed as the factor which increases labor productivity, we obtain income per unit of effective labor as a function of the capital per unit of effective labor as given by; (Noel and Mark 2017) (Y(t)/A(t)L(t)={k/(A(t)L(t))}α*{A(t)L(t)/(A(t)L(t)}1α?y=Kα…4. where y is the output per unit of the effective labor while k is the capital per unit of effective labor. However, any changes in capital will lead to changes in the level of total income as determined by;  K, where sf (k) is the income fraction saved. But similarly, capital change per unit effective worker finally will become zero, that is to say; K…………………………………………………………….5.This marks the point at which capital no longer accumulates but the capital ratio becomes constant. Thus the growth of income is seen to stabilize with the steady stae being reached with the output per effective worker. Inserting the expression into the steady sate equation gives the production function ( Yi Man and Yi Lut 2013).  ………………………………………6. However, the Solow model was further modified by introducing in the concept of human capital (Field & Alexander, 2011). Then the equation becomes; Y(t) = K(t)α H(t)β(A(t)L(t))1-α-β ………………………………7. Where H represents the human capital stock and β represents the income fraction paid to the human capital stock (Field 2011). The predicted elasticity's of income per capita is obtained as follows Yt = Ktα (AtHt) 1-α Yt = Ct + It Ct = (1-s) Yt ?t/At = g L't/Lt = n Therefore, growth becomes .But also, S= sYt( Robert and  Xavier. 2004)  (Wall and Griffiths2008) The authors believe that these coefficients supports the Solow model predictions because they knew that once the specification turns out of a large aspect of the problem due to systematic differences would not affect the Solow model predictions (Field 2011).Since the versions of the Solow model studied was abstract from achieving the predictions. However, the model as estimated is not completely successful because it needs improvements in its empirical performance (Field 2011). The empirical performance was not attained as expected thus improvement is needed (Agénor 2004). The authors propose to improve the empirical performance of the Solow model as its performance was not so good to the standard. They also proposed to improve its significance by modifying it version and introducing in more variables like the human labor and capital (Breton 2013). Defining x = X/L as per worker term; Then, y = Y/L = AKαL1-α/L = A(K/L)α (L/L)1-α = AKα but y =Y/AL, K =K/AL and H =H/AL y = Y/AL/L = {A (K/AL) αL1-α}/L From the production function given as; Y = F (K, L) = Kα L1-α but in per capita terms it becomes, Y/L = = Kα L1-α/L (Romer 2011). Which implies that, y = Kα L1-α and similarly, (K/L) α = Kα so no substituting gives O)The author usedin his equation simply because he wanted to account for the changes in share of capital. The authors realized that there are variations in the share of capital and so to account for them was introduced (Romer 2011) p). The results of estimating eq. (11) show that there is an increase in the share of capital  was introduced which caused a fall in the human capital. The Authors are sure that this equation is best to fit for the data because the biasness was removed by introducing the  into the equation. Therefore, the equation would produce more realistic results once it is fitted for the data (Breton 2013). References Acemoglu, Daron. 2009. "The Solow Growth Model".
