The Rise of Services and Balanced Growth in Theory and Data

Miguel Leon-Ledesma () and Alessio Moro

No 424, 2018 Meeting Papers from Society for Economic Dynamics

Abstract: We investigate the effect of structural transformation on economic growth in the U.S. and in cross-country data. Measuring the outcome of a two-sector growth model by using NIPA conventions, structural transformation in the U.S. induces a decline of 36% in the aggregate marginal product of capital, of 5.4% in the real interest rate, and of 16% in the growth rate of per-capita GDP between 1950 and 2015. By retaining the U.S. calibration, the process of structural transformation can also account, per-se, for cross-country differences in real investment/GDP ratios, which are comparable to those displayed by the U.S. along its growth path.
