Abstract

This note revisits the proof of the steady-state growth theorem, first given by Uzawa in 1961.We provide a clear statement of the theorem, discuss intuition for why it holds, and present a new, elegant proof due to Schlicht (2006). Copyright by the President and Fellows of Harvard College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
