Abstract

In growth and development policy investment ratio is an important policy instrument. However, there is no well defined framework to determine what should be the investment ratio for a given growth target. This paper explains the potential of Solow (1956) and Solow (1957) to explain the relationship between the target growth rate and investment ratio. Hypothetical data are used for illustration.
