This paper derives analytically the properties of the endogenous saving rate when technology takes the Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES) form. For a factor substitution elasticity between capital and labor less than unity, the saving rate decreases along the transition path after the capital stock reaches a critical value identified analytically herein. But before reaching this critical value, the saving rate might increase and so, taken as a whole, the saving rate path might manifest overshooting.' Similarly, for a factor substitution elasticity greater than unity, the saving rate increases along the transition path after the capital stock reaches a critical value. Before reaching this critical value, the saving rate might decrease and so the saving rate path might manifest undershooting.' A simulation illustrating these interesting dynamics is presented. aHardcopy version available to institutional subscribers. aSystem requirements: Adobe [Acrobat] Reader required for PDF files. aMode of access: World Wide Web. 7aE20 - General2Journal of Economic Literature class. 7aO41 - One, Two, and Multisector Growth Models2Journal of Economic Literature class.2 aNational Bureau of Economic Research. 0aTechnical Working Paper Series (National Bureau of Economic Research)vno. t0290.4 uhttp://www.nber.org/papers/t029041uhttp://dx.doi.org/10.3386/t0290
