Effects of temporal heterogeniety in the Baumol-Wolff productivity growth model
AbstractIn their utilization of R&D (information) output, different sectors of a heterogeneous industry display different reaction times. This paper analyzes the effects of this temporal heterogeniety on output and productivity for an extended version of the Baumol-Wolff model. Results include conditions implying persistent, non-decaying oscillations in the output and hence also in the productivity rate.
