Foreign Aid: Where Your Money Could Be? An Optimal Two-Sector Growth Model Out Lining a Simple Answer

By Raúl Fuentes

Abstract

Abstract � In this paper, we present an optimal two-sector growth model involving foreign aid as an input into the production function. We characterize the optimal resources allocation across sectors. Once calibrated, mainly, on Latin American countries, the model exhibits weak substitutability between aid and capital stock. Nonetheless, using numerical simulations, the model reproduces the main stylized facts outlined in the literature
