This assumption is made so that we can sensibly talk about stationary points. An essentially equivalent assumption would be that, however many, all primary factors grow asymptotically at the same constant rate (the "natural" growth rate). 9 Since an output price system "convexifies" just the production possibility sets derived from a nonconvex technology, in that case one can only recover the union of the convex hulls of cross sections of the representation Γ, or its "northeast" boundary, from the representation H.
