Capital Mobility in an Open Economy Model with Embodied Productivity Growth
The primary objective of this article is to present a framework with which to analyze development and long-run growth in a small economy. The model that is constructed can be summarized as an open economy version of the Solow-Swan growth model, in which productivity growth is embodied within the factors of production. Extending the Solow-Swan model by permitting international capital flows and trade is necessary, since the majority of the World’s economies must reasonably be considered small and open. Furthermore, restricting technological change to be embodied within capital and labor will be necessary in order for the properties of the model to coincide with recent evidence on technological change and the sources of productivity growth.
