Accounting for Growth with New Inputs

  • Feenstra, R.
  • Markusen, J.R.

This paper examines the aggregate production function in an economy characterized by the creation of new, intermediate inputs. The authors show how growth can be decomposed into changes in higher quantities of existing inputs and a greater range of inputs. Indexes of total factor productivity would reflect the latter. The authors construct a dynamic monopolistic-competition model in which products are endogenously introduced and simulate that model to produce artificial data. When used in standard growth-accounting regressions, the data can appear to be generated by an economy with exogenous technical change and (approximately) constant returns to primary factors.
