(Fractional) Beta Convergence

Claudio Michelacci () and Paolo Zaffaroni

Working Papers from Banca Italia - Servizio di Studi

Abstract: Unit roots in output, an exponential 2 per cent rate of convergence and no change in the underlying dynamics of output seem to be three stylized facts that cannot go together. This paper extends the Solow-Swan growth model allowing for cross-sectional heterogeneity. In this framework, aggregate shocks might vanish at a hyperbolic rather than at an exponential rate.
