No 04-13:
Factor Intensity Reversal and Ergodic Chaos

Aditya Goenka () and Odile Poulsen ()

Abstract: This paper studies a two-sector endogenous growth model with

labour augmenting externalities or Harrod-Neutral technical change. The

technologies are general and the preferences are of the CES class. If con-

sumers are su±ciently patient, ergodic chaos and geometric sensitivity to

initial conditions can emerge if either (1) there is factor intensity reversal;

or (2) if the consumption goods producing sector is always capital intensive.

The upper bound on the discount rate is determined only by the transver-

sality condition. If utility is linear, there can be chaos only if there is factor

intensity reversal
