Capital, investment, and development : essays in memory of Sukhamoy Chakravarty by Kaushik Basu( Book )

Equilibrium, trade, and growth : selected papers of Lionel W. McKenzie by Lionel W McKenzie( Book )

Optimization and chaos by Mukul Majumdar( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
This collection of essays brings together some articles on dynamic optimization models that exhibit chaotic behavior. Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9 appeared in a Symposium on Chaotic Dynamical Systems in Economic Theory (Volume 4, Number 5, 1994). Also, Chapters 10,11, and 12 appeared in the Journal of Economic The ory. We would like to thank the authors, and Academic Press for permission to reprint. We are grateful to Professor C.D. Aliprantis for suggesting the idea of a book structured around the Economic Theory Symposium, and without the support and patience of Dr. Mueller this project could not have been completed. We would like to thank Ms. Amy Gowan who cheerfully per formed the arduous task of typing the manuscript. Thanks are also due to Xiao Qing Yu, Tridip Ray and Malabika Majumdar for their help at various stages in the preparation of the manuscript. For a course on dynamic optimization addressed to students with a good background in economic theory and real analysis, one can assign Chapter 2 as a partial introduction to the basic tech niques. Chapters 3 and 4 can be assigned to provide examples of simple optmization models generating complicated behavior

Sustainability and discounted utilitarianism in models of economic growth by Geir B Asheim( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Discounted utilitarianism treats generations unequally and leads to seemingly unappealing consequences in some models of economic growth. Instead, this paper presents and applies sustainable discounted utilitarianism (SDU). SDU respects the interests of future generations and resolves intergenerational conflicts by imposing on discounted utilitarianism that the evaluation be insensitive to the interests of the present generation if the present is better off than the future. An SDU social welfare function always exists. We provide a convenient sufficient condition to identify SDU optima and apply SDU to two well-known models of economic growth. We also investigate the axiomatic basis for SDU. -- Intergenerational equity ; sustainability ; discounted utilitarianism ; egalitarian consumption streams ; efficiency ; exhaustible resources
Characterizing the sustainability problem in an exhaustible resource model by Tapan Mitra( Computer File )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
The Dasgupta-Heal-Solow-Stiglitz model of capital accumulation and resource depletion poses the following sustainability problem: is it feasible to sustain indefinitely a level of consumption that is bounded away from zero? We provide a complete technological characterization of the sustainability problem in this model without reference to the time path. As a byproduct we show general existence of a maximin optimal path under weaker conditions that those employed in previous work. Our proofs yield new insights into the meaning and significance of Hartwick's reinvestment rule. -- Sustainability ; Maximin
Constant savings rates and quasi-arithmetic population growth under exhaustible resource constraints by Geir B Asheim( Computer File )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
In the Dasgupta-Heal-Solow-Stiglitz model of capital accumulation and resource depletion we show the following equivalence: If an efficient path has constant (gross and net of population growth) savings rates, then population growth must be quasi-arithmetic and the path is a maximin or a classical utilitarian optimum. Conversely, if a path is optimal according to maximin or classical utilitarianism (with constant elasticity of marginal utility) under quasiarithmetic population growth, then the (gross and net of population growth) savings rates converge asymptotically to constants
Indefinitely sustained consumption despite exhaustible natural resources by David Cass( Book )
5 editions published in 1990 in 3 languages and held by 9 libraries worldwide

4 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Handbook on optimal growth by Rose-Anne Dana( file )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"The problem of efficient or optimal allocation of resources is a fundamental concern of economic analysis. The theory of optimal economic growth can be viewed as an aspect of this central theme, which emphasizes in general the issues arising in the allocation of resources over an infinite time horizon, and in particular the consumption-investment decision process in models in which there is no natural ""terminal date"". This broad scope of ""optimal growth theory"" is one which has evolved over time, as economists have discovered new interpretations of its central results, as well as new applications of its basic methods. The Handbook on Optimal Growth provides surveys of significant results of the theory of optimal growth, as well as the techniques of dynamic optimization theory on which they are based. Armed with the results and methods of this theory, a researcher will be in an advantageous position to apply these versatile methods of analysis to new issues in the area of dynamic economics."
