Any displacement from saddle point A will lead the economy to a new, higher stable equilibrium at B or, alternatively, to a low-growth trap.

Obviously, depending on the position of the curves, other possibilities may exist that can generate explosive virtuous 28 BEYOND REFORMS or vicious circles. Also, nothing guarantees that equilibrium will always arise at a positive rate of growth. 32 However, because many of the processes we are analyzing are time-bound, the steady-state properties of the model are actually uninteresting. Indeed, innovations may be seen as “spurts” that shift the technical progress function, but tend to weaken through time as innovations spread.
One way to express these opposite effects is to say that, although the microeconomic effects of competition on productivity growth may be positive, specialization may have negative microeconomic effects and the mesoeconomic (structural) factors, in particular, may be adverse. The net effects of reforms on TT are thus unclear. On the other hand, through either Keynesian mechanisms or the supply effects characteristic of a foreign-exchange-constrained economy, the increase in the propensity to import generated by trade reform will lead to a leftward shift in the GG function.
