Multiple equilibria in the Aghion-Howitt model

Jess Benhabib

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We show that the simple Aghion-Howitt model exhibits oscillatory indeterminacy in the process of creative destruction as firms undertaking new research do not internalize their effect on existing firms. A simple calibration shows that indeterminacy occurs for quite plausible parametrizations of the share of the intermediate good.
