Then in a steady state the representative household must have a constant capital stock. So it must be neither borrowing nor saving. But this household is impatient (b < 1), so if there were no cost of borrowing it would prefer to borrow. Therefore, the rate of interest, which is the cost of borrowing, must be high enough to persuade the household not to borrow. 19) that steady-state interest rate is the rate of time preference r. Suppose now that g is positive. Then in a steady state the representative household must be saving each period by enough to make its capital stock grow at the rate g.

12) t = 1, 2, . . 12) states that the marginal utility of consumption must always equal the shadow value lt+1 of a unit of capital next period. 11), each unit of consumption costs one unit of capital next period, and hence optimality requires that these alternatives have the same marginal value. 13) is the Euler equation. 12) as 1 + r ( K t +1 ) = u′(ct ) , βu′(ct +1 ) t = 0, 1, . . 15) Neoclassical Growth Theory 35 which is a familiar condition for optimal consumption smoothing over time, namely, that the marginal rate of substitution between consumption this period and next must equal the marginal rate of transformation 1 + r(Kt+1).

This prediction is known as conditional convergence, because it says that convergence is conditional on having the same technology and fundamental variables. The reason why the model implies conditional convergence is simple. If two countries have the same fundamentals and share the same technology, then they 30 Chapter 1 will each be converging to the same steady state, and therefore they will be converging to each other. Otherwise they will generally be converging to different steady states and therefore not to each other.
