Evolution of population-resource dynamics models

  • Nagase, Yoko
  • Uehara, Takuro
Registered author(s):

    This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of Brander and Taylor's (1998) model and its descendants from the following perspectives: population growth, substitutability, innovation, capital accumulation, property rights and institutional designs, and modeling approach. This survey aims to contribute to a better understanding of population and resource dynamics models in general and facilitate further application of the model framework to relevant circumstances.
