This enters into two equations of the model: that relating μ to λ (see Chapter 6, paragraph 8, above), where an must be added to the denominator on the right-hand side, thus tending to increase λ for given μ; and the equation for the marginal rate of return, where an will tend to reduce that return below the shareholders' discount rate. Animal spirits thus offset monopoly, since the latter tends to lower λ and to raise the required average rate of return. Chapter 10: Why Growth Rates Differ, I 1.
The estimated magnitude of ‘animal spirits’ depends on the value chosen for the average price elasticity of demand. The larger that is, the smaller is the coefﬁcient of ‘animal spirits’. SUMMARY xlvii 9. Optimum growth may be deﬁned as the rate of growth that would occur if there were four changes to the existing situation: no marginal net taxation of savings; no learning externality; no market imperfections, so that there was no demand externality; and no ‘animal spirits’, so that managers maximized the value of their ﬁrms to their shareholders.
7. This measure of the capital stock cannot be used in the usual production function, but neither can either of the two measures generally used (see Chapter 3). xxx SUMMARY Chapter 2: Growth Facts 1. The ‘stylized facts’ of growth are that, abstracting from ﬂuctuations in the ratio of output to capacity, the rates of growth of output and of employment, and the shares of ‘wages’, ‘proﬁts’, and investment in total output, are all constant. The rate of return to investment is then also constant. When these conditions are all satisﬁed, the economy (or a particular industry or ﬁrm, if the conditions are satisﬁed for it) is said to be in a state of ‘equilibrium growth’, or ‘steady growth’.
