A Malthus-Swan-Solow model of economic growth

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we introduce in the Solow-Swan growth model a labor supply based on Malthusian ideas. We show that this model may yield several steady states and that an increase in total factor productivity might decrease the capital-labor ratio in a stable equilibrium.
