Hence, g(k) ≥ βω(k) , (1 + β)(1 + n) from which we deduce that g(k) < 1 =⇒ k ω(k) 1+β < (1 + n) . k β The necessary condition for 0 to be a catching point can be converted into a sufficient condition for 0 not to be a catching point.

17) is then equivalent to (kt+1 , ω(kt )) = 0, which is equivalent to kt+1 = g(kt ). The derivative of g is g (k) = h (ω(k))ω (k) = sw (ω(k), f (g(k)))ω (k) . 1 + n − sR (ω(k), f (g(k))) f (g(k)) Competitive Equilibria 25 One important difficulty for applications is that the hypothesis H3 is not directly formulated in terms of preferences and technologies and depends on the equilibrium values of k and w. Thus, it is useful to have the following sufficient condition for uniqueness. Assumption A4. The utility function verifies ∀c > 0, u (c) + cu (c) ≥ 0.
