Introduction

The article looks at technical change using a two-product model involving agricultural (A) and non-agricultural (N) output for an economy. The author makes four crucial assumptions; technical change affects the production of A only, it is a neutral change (non-saving in any input), the economy is closed (no international trade), and no adjustments allowed so as to enable static analysis.
