Evolution of Factors and Output
The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the dynamic developments of the model presented in the previous chapter. In Sect. 7.1, the model’s long run solutions are derived, and it is shown that under the given assumptions, all regions converge to the same stable output levels in the long run. An eventual outcome, possibly beyond our lifetimes, may be of limited interest; for this reason, a number of medium run scenarios of regional growth are discussed comprehensively in Sect. 7.2. The model makes clear predictions concerning mutual interdependence, initial output levels and stocks of capital, which are derived formally in Sect. 7.3.
