The interaction between natural resources- and physical capital-intensive sectors in a behavioral model of economic growth
AbstractIn this paper we examine the role played by environmental externalities in shaping the dynamics of a small open economy with two sectors (a farming sector and an industrial one), free inter-sectoral labor mobility and heterogeneous agents (workers/farmers and industrial entrepreneurs). We find that the stability properties of the equilibria and their features in terms of environmental preservation, welfare outcomes and sectoral allocation of labor are sensitive to the relative level of carrying capacity with respect to the rate of environmental pressure of the economic activities. We show that an endogenous process of industrialization associated to a reduction in farmers/workers’ welfare can emerge
