Abstract

In this paper we prove the existence, uniqueness and saddle-point stability of the steady state (or balanced growth path) of the Romer (1990) model by utilizing the reduction of dimensionality. Furthermore, we found out a set of policy instruments to improve the monopolistic competitive equilibrium allocation up to social optimum.
