Here we can distinguish two cases: There is a widespread belief among economists that developing countries at their initial stages of growth cannot absorb all possible amounts of investment; there is an upper limit to it, often caused by, among other things, a shor- tage of skill and technical know-how. Assume that income has in this time interval changed from Y o to Y t.

Two-Gap Models of Foreign Aid: A Survey | M.G. Quibria –

National income accounting theory suggests that these gaps are not independent. The East Asian tigers present the best examples for such state-led industrialization.

Further, he finds that as the relative weight of foreign resource costs is increased, the economy-wide incremental capital-output ratio increases, reflecting rising costs of import substitution; or viewed from a different point, it implies increasing marginal pro- ductivity of foreign capital. From the above relations, one can derive further insight with respect to the date chenerh termination of foreign aid and necessary analytical conditions.

They contend that a country is likely to go through srout phases of economic development each associated with a dominant inhibiting factor to development. While discussing these models, unlike our exposition in the preceding section, we shall, of necessity, desist from spelling out the mathematical argument of the models in detail.

This is what he calls trade and savings limited growth TSL. The interactions between aid and economic development can be handled in the multi-sector optimizing models only indirectly– through sensitivity analysis.

It shows what Fei-Paauw would call the intermediate case.

Remember me on this computer. What is the two – gap model in development economics? However, one novel in- novation of this model is that Mckinnon draws a distinction bet- ween domestically produced and foreign produced storut goods. In that sense only, the Bergsman-Manne model remains an ‘almost consistent’ model. Scientific Research An Academic Publisher.

The way they pose the problem is as follows: However, at the present stage, this excuse seems no longer tenable. A survey,” Journal of Development Economics,1: In his’open loop’ version, he takes the supply of foreign exchange as the only limiting factor. The objective function is to maximize the increment in the first year consumption level, the initial year ag- gregate consumption level as well as the growth rate of increments in consumption in following years being defined exogenously.

Chenery and MacEwan postulate the following three alternative profiles of resource inflow: So far as the models are concerned, they are all linear and they fall into two broad categories- consistency models of the input- output variety and optimizing models of the programming variety.

The research assistance of Samia Choudhury and Akhtar Mahmood is gratefully acknowledged. As has been mentioned before, in the first phase it is the absorptive capacity constraint that becomes binding. By elementary calculations, one can easily derive: However, the capital absorptive capacity constraint has also been employed as a special constraint attached to the savings-investment gap approach or in combination with both the savings and foreign ex- change constraints.

Gap between domestic savings and investmentwhere domestic savings are inadequate to support the level of growth. Fei and Paauw analyze the relationship bet- ween external resources and the mobilization of domestic an. For instance, export and import figures in aggregative models, as it is often argued, are too simplistic to be of use for policy deci: In phase II, GNP and investment rise at a constant rate with external assistance chenry determined by the difference between k.

Modern EconomyVol. The article builds four clusters of countries classified by the dominance of exports of 1 fuel products, 2 manufactured products, 3 food items and agricultural products and 4 ores and minerals. This rough-and- ready approach has a special appeal for many practical ad- minstrators who have only limited resources to ration.

For example, three successful strojt in the Fei-Paauw model -Colombia, Tunisia and Mexico- fail to pass the roughly equivalent savings criterion of Chenery-Strout; again, eight countries which pass the test of Chenery-Strout–Argentina, Brazil, Honduras, India, Israel, Nigeria, Panama and Peru—were among the set of unsuccessful” countries of Fei-Paauw. Bruno is a static linear programming model, based essentially on an earlier work of the author It would be highly desirable to include these possibilities in the planning models focusing on the foreign resource implications of growth.

A developing country starts off with chenety low savings, but it has to engage in a big push by investing heavily. They postulate that the level of import M trequired to sustain a given level of income at time t: In this phase investment can grow at a maximum rate of b. Cyenery the volume of aid inflow increases, its shadow price declines. Let us turn briefly to the three phases of growth. This domination validates a priori belief that manufacturing goods and exports is the best strategy for development of exports of 11966 country.

This article uses a sample of 44 countries to assess their export performance over the periodusing the chemery model, a fhenery of the modern portfolio theory. If the gap is reduced it becomes easier for the economics to reach the stage of take off as postulated by Rostow in his theory, Stages of economic development.

In the second variant, they impose the savings constraint but the profile of aid in- flow is flexible. Thus one can distinguish three sets of possibilities. He assumed that total output Y, is a fixed-coefficient function of domestic and foreign capitals— and Kf. Here we intend to point briefly to some major shortcomings–as we perceive them–of these works. From the following figure Figure 2one can easily see that the impact of aid on growth is greater if the bottleneck constraint is binding rather than the savings constraint.

Two-gap model is an extention of harrod-domar growth model and argues that development of less developed countries is constrained due to presence sstrout two gaps:.

Now intergrating, one gets: This case is distinguished by a high value of s or a low value of the rate of population growth or both. From the above, one can derive:
