1 At the end of this chapter we discuss briefly some relevant recent evidence. Here, we note that long-run cross-sectional relationships between savings rates, income levels, and income distribution are not easy to document empirically. The neutrality of distribution for aggregate savings, implied 1 Kuznets (1955) argued that the movement of factors from a low-paying traditional sector to a high-paying modern sector leads to such an inverse U. In contrast to the neoclassical explanation based on capital accumulation presented in this chapter, Kuznets’s explanation drew on mobility barriers and market imperfections.

At the end, everyone owns the same amount of capital. What is the intuition behind this astonishing result? To answer this question, interpret (1 − cˆ )R − c˜ as net savings propensity out of wealth. Since diminishing returns cause R to fall in the accumulation process and cˆ and c˜ remain constant, the net savings propensity is negative in steady state. This causes the result of absolute convergence. The falling rate of return R exerts a further equalizing force because this is especially harmful for the wealthy people.

In other words, such a steady state has a destitute class of borrowers. We finally note that in the (perhaps less realistic) case where c¯ < 0 all individuals own positive wealth levels in the limit and the ergodic distribution of k is less unequal than the exogenous distribution of l.
