Working Papers. Serie AD from Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Económicas, S.A. (Ivie)

Abstract: Nonhomothetic preferences with minimums of subsistence imply rates of investment that increasewith the level of income, and thus a positive correlation between growth rates and the level ofincome, at low levels of income. The existence of this positive correlation for a closed economywas already shown in a previous paper. The purpose of this paper is to show that, if we introduceland -a scarce resource that cannot be accumulated- in the model, this positive correlation existsfor an open economy as well.
