1. Verify that, for the neoclassical production function, the marginal product of capital and the marginalproduct of labor are in fact given by (respectively),
∂Y/∂L= f(k)- kf'(K)
(Minimum requirement: a serious attempt at deriving these expressions.)
the professor gave as a clue to keep in mind this function.
Y/K= f(K)= f(K/L)
Begin with the neoclassical production function:
Where Y is output, K is capital, and L is labor.
Equation (1) exhibits three notable features. First, the marginal products of K and L are positive. That is, ∂Y/∂K>0 and ∂Y/∂L>0. An increase in K or L increases Y. The second derivatives are less than zero( ∂2Y/∂K2<0 and ...
Solow Model is utilized.
