Expert's answer

The Solow model is a neoclassical model of an economical growth of Robert Solow. It bases on the Cobb-Douglas production function. In this case a factor of the economical growth is a technical progress. Returns decrease on a sum of investments and consumption. So, we have such an equivalence as:

Y (returns) = I + C

Full employment and new technologies are the main conditions of steady state in an economy.

Y (returns) = I + C

Full employment and new technologies are the main conditions of steady state in an economy.
