Division du travail et progrès technique

Abstract : We present a model of growth based on the link between technical change and division of labour. Division of labour generates opportunities of introduction of new capital goods, which can help or even replace workers. The tasks which become useless disapear and new tasks are created to produce the new capital goods. This model analyzes the joint dynamic of labour and of capital goods. We show that the diversity of labour decelerates when technical change accelerates. We show that this model yields a new kind of growth model without scale effects.
