Abstract In this paper, we prove the existence and uniqueness of the optimal path for a resource endowed economy with R&D. This path converges to an optimal steady state, which is a saddle point, for each type of resources (renewable or non-renewable). In this steady state, a finite size resource sector coexists with other continuously growing sectors. In comparison, the corresponding decentralized equilibrium is suboptimal and there is either over- or under-investment in R&D from the social planner's perspective. At optimum, positive long-run growth will be sustained regardless type of resources used.
