Title in English
Two essays on economic growth and the relative price of capital
Keywords in English
Economic growth
Relatrive price of capital
Abstract in English
This dissertation consists in an analysis about the interconnection between the relative price of capital and economic growth. The work is divided in two essays. In the first one, an analysis of the dynamic impact of trade restrictions is performed in order to understand the impact over economic growth and relative price of capital. This analysis is particularly relevant to understand the Brazilian case, which presented a strong rise in the relative price of capital, exactly at the time the country was adopting import substitution policies and restrictions to the trade of capital goods. The second essay emphasizes differences between countries of income per capita and relative price of capital. Consistent with recent empirical work, this analysis emphasizes how differences in productivity could be generated and how this could impact the dispersion of income per capita and the relative price of capital.

Abstract in Portuguese
Esta dissertação consiste em uma análise sobre as interligações entre o preço relativo do capital e crescimento econômico. O trabalho está divido em dois ensaios. No primeiro, é realizado uma análise do impacto dinâmico de restrições ao comércio internacional sobre crescimento econômico e o preço relativo do capital. Essa análise é particularmente relevante para entender o caso brasileiro, que observou uma forte elevação do preço relativo do capital justamente em um período de substituição de importações e restrições ao comércio de bens de capital. O segundo ensaio procura olhar para as diferenças de renda per capita e do preço relativo do capital entre os países. Em consonância com trabalhos empíricos recentes, a análise enfatiza como diferenças em produtividade podem ser geradas e como isso pode impactar a dispersão de renda per capital e do preço relativo do capital.
