National Product Functions in Comparative Steady-State Analysis
The structural properties of steady state are well understood for multisector models, but the comparative dynamics of long-run growth are much less developed. By exploiting duality theory, this paper obtains conclusions about these effects for a small, internationally-trading economy. Arbitrary numbers of consumption and capital goods, and a very general technology, are admitted. Definite conclusions about the short-run and long-run impact on outputs and factor prices are not always available, but often correlations can be established between vectors of parameter changes and endogenous variable changes.
