This 'unconditional convergence', which is not found in agriculture or services, can provide a powerful engine of structural transformation and growth, but its significance depends on the pace of industrialization.
Second, there is unconditional convergence in energy intensity over time, both in the recent period and over the last two centuries.
He defines unconditional convergence as implying that the coefficient in a growth-initial level regression should be negative even if no other variable, such as education, is included.
This, however, again leads to a coupling of h and k, and thus destroys unconditional convergence. The problem can be reduced by using the Newton method for the midpoint scheme, which empirically allows for larger time steps; see [20] and also [8], where an efficient Newton-multigrid nonlinear solver has been proposed.
We first calculate an unconditional convergence model and then condition on entrepreneurship (1).
In particular, they show that services have exhibited "unconditional convergence" in productivity recently.
