A note on endogenous growth and scale effects

Contents:

Author Info

  • Garner, Phillip

Abstract

This paper reconciles the recent vs. very long-run evidence on scale effects in endogenous growth models by extending Howitt's (1999) model to include a subsistence constraint in consumption. Scale effects will be present only when this constraint is binding.
