Reswitching And Decreasing Demand For Capital

Author

Listed:
  • Fratini, Saverio M.

Abstract

We consider a model of production with a continuum of linear techniques and examine the related choice of technique and shape of the demand for capital schedule. The primary conclusion regards the possibility of a decreasing demand for capital schedule combined with reswitching and reverse capital deepening.
