This quantity is the ultimate results of the study venture ''Micro development model", that was once subsidized by means of the vital study Pool of Tilburg college, the Netherlands. except the college Council for this significant monetary aid, I owe Prof. Dr. Fiet Verheyen a great deal for how within which he brought me into clinical circles and for how during which he supervised and inspired my paintings. Dr. Jan de Jong and Peter Janssen C. E. , Technical college of Eindhoven, piloted me thoroughly in the course of the mathe matics of optimum keep an eye on conception and got rid of a few technical boundaries. Their aid was once critical for the good fortune of this undertaking. i might additionally wish to point out the type aid of Prof. Dr. Jack Kleijnen, who gave me many necessary tricks on tips to current the result of this venture. during this approach i used to be capable of touch with numerous resear chers inside and out the Netherlands. so much thankful i'm to Prof. Dr. Charles Tapiero, Jerusalem collage, who commented on very important components of this ebook in a optimistic manner and who steered many topics for extra examine. additionally Mr. Geert Jan vsn Schijndel, Tilburg college, could be pointed out right here, simply because he heavily learn the paintings and that i liked his comments and corrections greatly. Many collea gues have contributed to the result of this learn venture in a right away or oblique method. specially I should still prefer to point out my contacts with Prof. Dr.

Optimal solution. In the sections 1 through 3 of appendix 3 the reader will find how we derived the optimality conditions of the model (16)-(28), based on the Maximum Principle as described in appendix 1. Just as in the preceding models of chapter 3, the optimal trajectories of the firm can be divided in several stages (called: paths). Each path can be characterized by the boundaries that are active or inactive during the relevant period. In the sections 4 and 5 of appendix 3, the reader will find how we have derived the feasible paths and their relevant properties from the optimality conditions and from the above assumptions.
Investments and depreciation (Jorgenson). In fact, investment policies can only be described realistically in a dynamic way. It is the process of sacrifying purchasing power now to revenues later on ("breeding ef- fect"). Jorgenson (in: Jorgenson, 1963, and 1967) was among the first economists to present this problem in a dynamic framework. He describes a firm, maximizing its revenue over an infinite period of time. To compare revenue flows of different intervals within the planning period, they are discounted at a rate i, representing the time preference rate of the owners of the firm.
The amount of labour appears to adapt itself perfectly all the time, because it holds continuously that: (6) which can be interpreted (after multiplying both sides of (6) by the selling price p) in the same way as (5): marginal revenue to labour equals marginal costs of labour. 26 After the initial investment (or divestment) to reach the optimal level fixed by (5), the firm will keep the capital stock constant. Due to depreciation, i t thus has to replenish continuously and so, investments remain on the replacement level: ..
