Analyze the baseline model of Schumpeterian growth in Section 14.1 assuming that (14.5) is not satisfied.

(a) Show that monopolists set a limit price.

(b) Characterize the BGP equilibrium growth rate.

(c) Characterize the Pareto optimal allocation, and compare it to the equilibrium.

(d) Now consider a hypothetical economy in which the previous highest quality producer disappears, so that the monopolist can charge a markup of 1/(1- ß) instead of the limit price. Show that the BGP growth rate in this hypothetical economy is strictly greater than the growth rate characterized in part b. Explain this result.
