Executive Summary

The neo-classical growth model is a type of economic models of long-run economic growth set within the framework of neoclassical economics. The model is also known as Solow-Swan growth model or exogenous growth model. Long-run behavior of an economy can be explained using the neoclassical growth model. This model explains the long-run economic growth by analyzing productivity, population growth, capital accumulation and technological progress of a country. The model exogenously determines the long –run growth of the economy. The model works on the prediction that an economy always converge towards a steady rate of growth, which is dependent on the rate of technological progress and also the rate of labor force growth.
