Endogenous Growth and Structural Change in a Dynamic Input-Output Model

Bart Los

Economic Systems Research, 2001, vol. 13, issue 1, 3-34

Abstract: This paper introduces a simple dynamic input-output model, in which some of the most important properties of recent endogenous growth theory are included: innovation, knowledge spillovers, constant returns to scale at the macro level, and full employment. The wish to keep the hybrid model as tractable as possible (despite the industry detail) caused some substantial simplifications: contrary to most endogenous growth models, the model lacks an explicit microeconomic foundation and disregards any opportunity for instantaneous substitution. After the constituent equations are presented, the long-run behavior of the model is studied by a number of computer simulations for a hypothetical economy. The paper concludes with some illustrations of the potential practical power of future interindustry endogenous growth models in integrating issues like technology, investment, trade and education.
