# On the Inverse Optimal Problem

Conference paper

## Abstract

In an earlier paper^{+)} we have argued that a solution of the inverse optimal problem for deterministic growth paths may have interesting economic applications. The inverse optimal problem is the one in which one tries to infer from a given savings function what class of utility functions could give rise to the given savings function as an optimal solution of a specialized optimization problem.
