TRUE/FALSE

1.An increase in the depreciation rate affects the steady-state capital per worker the same way as an increase in the population growth rate.

2.If the saving rate increases, then the optimum level of capital per worker falls.

3.An increase in technology causes the optimum level of capital per worker to rise in the long run or steady state.

4.An increase in technology causes the real GDP per worker to increase during the transition to the steady-state.

5.An increase in technology cause the growth in real output per worker to be higher in the long run or steady-state.

6.An increase in the saving rate causes the growth in real output per worker to be lower in the long run or steady-state.

7.The Solow model of growth says that poorer economies should over time converge towards richer ones in terms of real output put worker.

8.In the long run or steady state of the Solow model, the growth rate of capital per worker is higher with a higher saving rate.

9.An increase in the population growth rate in the Solow model causes the growth in output per worker to be higher in the long run or steady-state.

10.An increase in the population growth rate in the Solow model causes output per worker to be lower in the long run or steady-state.
