### Ramsey model and the steady state

Following Barro's book about the Ramsey Model, when we work with variables expressed in units per effective labor we end up with the following system of 2 differential equations \frac{...

### Sustained growth in Ramsey model

It is known that in the classical Solow model that if we use CES production function instead of Cobb Douglas function, it is possible to have sustained growth if the substitutability is larger than 1. ...

### How is the constrained maximization problem in the Ramsey model solved?

Assuming that utility is forward discounted $\rho$, lifetime utility = $\int_{0}^{\infty} e^{-\rho t}u(c) \,dt$. And in continuous time, we also know that $\dot{k} = y - (\delta + n)k - c$. ...

### How to derive a general relationship between the Ramsey-Keynes rule and the law of motion for capital?

Consider a representative agent model where the representative agent has standard preferences $\int^{\infty}_te^{-\rho t}ln(c(t))dt$ where $\rho>0$ and $c(t)$ is consumption in period t as usual. ...
