Intellectual capital in economic growth models

Igor Lyashenko, Yuriy Tadeev


The new conception for constructing economic growth models is proposed in the article. Three main factors are taking into account: physical capital, labor, and intellectual capital (knowledge).  In this case, intellectual capital is represented in three dimensions: technological intellectual capital, human intellectual capital, and relational intellectual capital. In each dimension intellectual capital is considered as specific endogenous technological progress, which is described by the differential equation.
