Discusssion On The Idea And Technology In Labor Augmenting Solow Model Besides Physical And Human Capital Complementarity

It is suggested that developing countries could catch up with the developed world if only they attained increased levels of human development. The links between growth and human development are complex even with human capital its self and human capital to the physical capital. Besides large disparities in indicators of human well-being, such as life expectancy and educational attainment, not all countries with relatively higher levels of human development handles to achieve high long-term economic growth rates (United Nations, 2006). As data points out that in order to reach the convergence among the countries, not only the physical to human capital ratio plays crucial role but also the income level specific effects. What these income level specific effects indicate in our study? How they are related with technology and ideas? Technologies are the way in which inputs to the production process are transformed into output and ideas improve the technology of production. Therefore, a new idea allows a given bundle of inputs to produce more or better output and ideas are non-rivalrous. Once an idea is created, anyone with knowledge of the idea can take advantage of it. Ideas are partially excludable while technologies in the inputs are mostly excludable since goods and inputs suffer from tragedy of commons. Thus, in order to benefit efficiently from the ideas and technology, the macro economic stability, social cohesion, common structural habits or feeling secure about the life, geography, religion, corruption, quality of institutions and governance structures matter for economic growth. That is what dummies stands for and that goes with what Bulutay (1995) emphasizes about the ambiance created by the countries.

We have focused on the effect of nutrition oil per capita income as well as for the contribution of nutrition in income differences among countries. In particular, whether accounting for nutritional differences will reduce the size of the unexplained residual variance currently attributed to differences in productivity among countries with different income levels. Me have presented a variance decomposition methodology for the direct effect of nutrition on per-capita income besides introducing physical capit...

The unprecedented rate of urbanization globally is associated with a decrease in access to natural environments. Congested urban spaces are compelling adults and children to spend a considerable amount of time inside the buildings which by some reports is up to 90% of their life. Numerous studies have affirmed that Children at young ages are in a more critical demand of being connected to nature, in comparison to adults. Nature is an essential aspect of a child’s requirements from living areas as it is inhe...

Demands and expectations for health care have gradually increased with the longer life expectancy and decline in birth rate, however the resources reserved for health services are relatively limited. The countries with aging population problems are trying to develop new systems to obtain more effective usage of current resources. The aging population and resultant chronic illnesses has become a real problem for Turkey as well. The increase in elderly population results in more demand for health care because...
Optimal capital structure for build-operate-transfer power projects
Arıcı, Erdem; Arıkan, Metin S.; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
Observing the deficiencies of traditional methods in meeting the demands of today̕s infrastructure development has been motivating countries towards privatization of these sectors. However, due to the differences in these sectors as compared to other businesses, privatization can not be performed without strict regulations. Today, concession agreements like BOT models seem the best way for solving the problems. Financing of concession agreements plays a key role. In Turkey, most BOT projects are financed by...
