If the net-benefit function satisfies (10) and (11), then for any pair (/, k) such that b'j(0) = b'k(0) either 7) Ç Tk or Tk Ç I}. Proof. We seek to show that either Sj(k) is empty or Sk(j) is empty. 46 M. C. Kemp and N. V. Long Suppose that both S;(/c) and Sk(j) are non-empty.

Moreover, from the concavity of the production function, (i=f,2) for all t>T; and, of course, fc(i)(i)>fc(i) and k(i\t)>k(t) R(l\t) = R*(t) for t > T. It follows that if the program {fc*(r), Ä*(i), r*(i)} is feasible, then so are the programs, just described, of the two fictitious economies and, a fortiori, so are those programs modified by the substitution of the positive constant ä (l) = inff a(i)(t) for a(i)(t). But it is known that such modified programs are infeasible: that the first is infeasible has been shown by Kemp and Long (1982), that the second is infeasible has been demonstrated in section 2.

An alternative model We have considered conditions for the survival of a small country which depends on foreign sources for an essential raw material. It was found in section 2 that survival is impossible if the rate of resource-saving technical progress is less than the rate of deterioration of the terms of trade. Suppose instead that the imported good is an essential consumption good. What then are the conditions of survival? Sticking as close as possible to the formulation of section 2, we might write utility as u(t) = γ(ήωΓ(ήβ exp(jßAi), 0 < ω,β < 1 ;ω + β < 1, and y(t) = k(ty, 0<μ<1, .
