What are the assumptions of Solow model?
Thereof, what does the Solow model explain?
The Solow–Swan model is an economic model of long-run economic growth set within the framework of neoclassical economics. It attempts to explain long-run economic growth by looking at capital accumulation, labor or population growth, and increases in productivity, commonly referred to as technological progress.
Furthermore, what is the mechanism in the Solow model that generates growth? In the Solow model, the growth rate of capital leads to generate growth in the economy. Increase in the quantity of resources allocated in the production process does not necessarily leads to increase the output in the economy. The growth of capital generates and affects the output growth rate.
Beside this, what is the steady state in the Solow model?
The steady-state is the key to understanding the Solow Model. At the steady-state, an investment is equal to depreciation. That means that all of investment is being used just to repair and replace the existing capital stock.
