    Capital Goods Import, Balance of Payments Constraint, and Economic Growth. 

This paper explores the interaction between trade and growth. In particular, we assume that the information of advanced technology is embodied within high-quality capital goods, which are produced by developed economies. Thus, the international technology diffusion goes through the channel of trading high quality capital goods, which establishes a direct causal linkage from trade to growth. The capital import is subject to a balance of payment constraint, and must be financed by exports. We define and characterize two types of steady states and illustrate the interaction between the balance of payments constraint and the optimal capital import condition.

    Agriculture Modernization, Investment, and Structural Change, with Yu You

This paper illuminates the role played by agricultural modernization in structural change. As workers leave traditional agriculture sector to settle down in modern agriculture sector and non-agriculture sectors, demand for capital goods temporally increases. Since the majority of capital goods comes from the manufacturing sector, the manufacturing employment share would first rise, then decline and converge to a generalized balanced growth path defined by Kongsamut, Rebelo, and Xie (2001). Our model generates hump-shaped patterns for manufacturing employment share and investment rate without assuming unbalanced technology growth.
