When Are Comparative Dynamics Monotone?
AbstractA common problem in dynamic economic theory is to determine when an increase in a parameter and/or an initial condition increases the future dynamics of a theoretical economy. This paper provides conditions that are necessary and sufficient for making statements of this type. The result is applicable to situations with a single agent or with many agents in the presence or absence of uncertainty. The result holds for general notions of what it means for a parameter, an initial condition or even the dynamics of a model to be increasing. (Copyright: Elsevier)
