A=
Solow model simulations
Idea: each date is connected to the previous one
Inputs (from Penn World Table)
Y0 =
4.0790 (initial GDP)
A0 =
3.4299 (initial TFP)
K0 =
8.2330 (initial capital)
L0 =
0.4520 (initial labor)
alpha =
0.3333 (capital share in production function)
s=
0.2500 (saving/investment rate)
delta =
0.0600 (deprec rate)
a=
0.0000 (TFP growth rate)
n=
0.0000 (labor growth rate)
