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.
