If so, we say there is crosscountry convergence. The neoclassical model answers this question with a qualiﬁed yes. That is, suppose country 1 has a lower per capita GDP than country 2. Then the theory predicts that this difference in per capita GDPs will tend to disappear over time if the two countries share the same technology (as deﬁned by the production function F and the path At of efﬁciency units per person) and the same fundamental determinants of capital accumulation (the saving rate s, the depreciation rate d, and the population growth rate n), but not otherwise.

For an alternative treatment using the Hamiltonian method, see appendix 1B. 15. 17 In this case, individuals have the same elasticity of substitution 1/e between present and future consumption18 no matter the level of consumption. This is the key parameter deﬁning the household’s desire to smooth consumption over time, and in this class of utility functions that desire is independent of the level of consumption. Using the fact that in this case u′( c ) = c − ε ; u′′( c ) = −ε c −(ε +1) 1+ ρ 1+ r around the point (r, r) = (0, 0).
Yet it is a useful tool for many purposes when the distinction between innovation and accumulation is of secondary importance. We present the AK model in chapter 2, where we show how it can be used to analyze terms-of-trade effects in the context of an open economy. In later chapters we use the model when analyzing the transition from a Malthusian economy to an economy with positive long-run growth, when analyzing the relationship between ﬁnancial constraints, wealth inequality and growth, when discussing the relationship between volatility, risk, and growth, and when looking at the interplay between growth and culture.
