Consider a Solow growth model with Cobb-Douglas production, savings rate s, depreciation rate δ, population growth rate n, and rate of technological progress equal to g. You can use your answers from Question 2 to answer the following questions. (a) Consider the following empirical observations for the U.S.: Population growth is roughly 2% Depreciation accounts for 10% of GDP GDP grows at a rate of 3% Capital owners’ share of output is roughly 30% (b) Based on these data, what is the golden rule level of capital?
