Handbook of optimal growth by Rose-Anne Dana ( )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member 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
Optimization and chaos by Mukul Majumdar ( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book begins with an introduction to some of the basic concepts and results on chaotic dynamical systems. Next it turns to a detailed self-contained summary of the literature on discounted dynamic optimization. The first two chapters are of particular pedagogical interest. The volume also brings together a number of outstanding advanced research papers on complex behavior of dynamic economic models. These make it clear that complexity cannot be dismissed as "exceptional" or "pathological" and, for explanation and prediction of economic variables, it is imperative to develop models with special structures suggested by empirical studies. Graduate students in economics will find the book valuable for an introduction to optimization and chaos. Specialists will find new directions to explore themes like robustness of chaotic behavior and the role of discounting in generating cycles and complexity

Sustainability and discounted utilitarianism in models of economic growth by Geir B Asheim ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member 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
Constant savings rates and quasi-arithmetic population growth under exhaustible resource constraints by Geir B Asheim ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member 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 )

Popular support for progressive taxation in the presence of interdependent preferences by Efe A Ok ( Book )

Characterizing the sustainability problem in an exhaustible resource model ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member 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
