1. Kenichiro Ikeshita, Effects of Subsidies for Automation on Economic Growth and Factor
Prices, PRSCO 2022: 27th Pacific Conference of the RSAI 2022, 2022.08, In recent years, while rapid progress in digital technology has made it easier to automate the production process, it has raised concerns that the machines may deprive workers of employment. However, it has not been fully studied how automation-oriented policies affect economic growth. In this paper, we examine the effect of task automation on economic growth and its policy implications by incorporating the task-based approach into the neoclassical growth model. We find that if the number of automated tasks is determined by the firms’ cost minimization behavior, the aggregate production function becomes asymptotically linear. As a result, a higher subsidy rate for automation raises the rate of return on machinery (capital) and generates perpetual economic growth. On the other hand, both the rental price of capital and the wage converge to their constant values along the equilibrium path. In addition, while an increase in the subsidy rate for automation raises the long-term rental price of capital, it does not affect the long-term wage rate..
