The Dynamic Leontief Model and the Theory of Endogenous Growth


  • Heinz Kurz
  • Neri Salvadori


This paper shows that the dynamic Leontief model can be interpreted as a linear model of endogenous growth. The long-term rate of growth is determined within the economic system - either as the outcome of the saving and investment behaviour of agents or as the outcome of some planner's maximization of some objective function.
