Economic Vulnerability And Economic Growth: Some Results From A Neo-Classical Growth Modelling Approach
This paper incorporates economic vulnerability, defined as the increased proneness of certain economies to downside risks, within a neo-classical economic growth model to seek an explanation to the observation that a number of vulnerable economies enjoy high per capita output levels. Steady state results indicate that the more vulnerable economy would tend to have a higher per capita capital stock and output but a lower per capita consumption level, as resources are allocated to counteract vulnerability. Dynamic modelling results indicate that vulnerability reduces the speed of convergence between economies at different states of development.
