Semi-endogenous growth when population is decreasing

Registered author(s):

    The paper analyzes the effect of a negative population growth rate on per capita income growth using a simple model of semi-endogenous growth. It is shown that there is a non-monotonous relationship between population growth rates and long-run per capita income growth rates. Compared to the case of positive population growth the dynamics are richer and depend on the rate of depreciation. Semi-endogenous growth becomes partly endogenous.
