This can Dynamic Economic Stabilization 17 be seen by contrasting the numbers in table 4 with those reported in first, middle and last columns of table 1 above, which are for otherwise identical parameters. Other than this difference in level, the effects of varying 'fJy on the reported volatilities are broadly similar, both in the pattern of dependence and the magnitudes of the changes. Though not reported in the above tables, in all the preceding experiments, the volatility of the cyclical component of the private capital stock falls somewhat as 'fJy runs from positive to negative, while the volatility of the cyclical component of the public capital stock increases sharply.

This is due the fact that with TIp) == 0 government investment is left proportional to the level of technology A; this in turn feeds into the public capital stock, adding an additional element of volatility. 16 CHAPTER Finally, table 3 gives results for the case of ( two 'extremes' of 1}y = 5 and -5. 10, as one might expect, the impact of varying 1}y on the standard deviations of all quantities is greatly reduced. In this case only the standard deviation of private investment shows any discernible relation to 1}y, the standard deviations of the other quantities changing only slightly and, in any event, not monotonically.
