Abstract : This is an extension of Professor Arrow's paper on 'Optimal Capital Policy, the Cost of Capital, and Myopic Decision Rules.' First, an alternative method of solution of the renewal equation is given. Then the optimal rule is extended to the case of many commodities with fixed depreciation. Then the case is considered of variable depreciation and the optimal rule for this, extended to the case of many commodities. Necessary and sufficient correlations for the optima are carefully studied. (Author)
