12) That is, the parameter α that appeared in the earlier GDP function now equals A, which is the Hick’s neutral productivity parameter on good 1. Notice that Ap enters in a multiplicative form as an argument of the GDP function, since that is how it appears in the objective function. We have demonstrated in chapter 1 that the derivative of the GDP function with respect to price equals the output of that good, or ∂G / ∂p = y1 . Letting G1(Ap,V) denote the partial derivative of G with respect to its first argument, we therefore have: y1 = ∂G ∂G d(Ap) = = G1 (Ap, V)A .

1) are measured by θiL = wL i / p i y i and θiK = rK i / p i y i , which are the revenue shares of labor and capital. Under the further assumption of constant returns to scale, these shares sum to unity so that θiK = 1 – θiL. 1) that technological progress A i between the growth of output and a share-weighted average of the growth in inputs, which is the 10-4 Feenstra, Advanced International Trade definition of total factor productivity (TFP) due to Solow (1957):3 ˆ ]. 1’) Notice that this measure of productivity growth is indeed a “residual” – the portion of output growth that is not explained by inputs – or a “measure of our ignorance,” in the memorable phrase of Robert Solow.

8) Thus, the drop in the export price that will just keep welfare constant is, dp = ∂G dα (c1 − y1 ) . 9). Equilibrium in the export market means that ( y1 − c1 ) = m1* , where m1* is import demand from the rest of the world. Totally differentiating this, we obtain, Feenstra, Advanced International Trade 10-11  ∂y dy1 ∂c  dm1* dα +  1 − 1 dp = dp . dα ∂p  dp  ∂p Thus, the equilibrium change in the price of exports is, dy1 dα α d dp =  dm1*  ∂y1 ∂c1   − −   ∂p   dp  ∂p . 10) is negative while the numerator is positive, so this expression indicates the drop in the export price due to growth.
