The Segerstrom Model: Stability, Speed of Convergence and Policy Implications

Thomas Steger ()

Economics Bulletin, 2003, vol. 15, issue 4, 1-8

Abstract: This short paper presents a simple analytical stability proof for the well-known Segerstrom (1998) model of endogenous growth. Moreover, a calibrated version of the model is employed to assess the speed of convergence. The result shows that transitional dynamics are important and, hence, the policy ineffectiveness proposition of non-scale endogenous growth models must be qualified.
