Suppose an economy experiences technological change at rate gA, depreciation at rate δ, and population growth at rate gN. Furthermore, the economy saves at a constant rate s. If the economy is in steady state, we would expect

 output per worker to grow at a rate of
 output per worker to be constant
 output per worker to grow at a rate of
 output per worker to grow at a rate of
 output per worker to grow at a rate of

If the economy is in steady state and there is technological growth at the rate of GA, then the output per worker will always grow at the rate of growth of technology i.e GA.

Hence the correct answer is (D).

Suppose there are two very similar countries (call them E and F). Both countries have the same population and neither is experiencing population growth (that is, N is identical and constant in both countries). Both countries depreciate capital at the same rate, the both have the same savings rate, they both have the same technology, and there is no technological progress. Suppose that currently both countries are in steady state, when an earthquake destroys half of the capital stock of...
