|Abstract: ||This thesis investigates the interplay between uncertainty, technological innovations,
and economic growth in an overlapping-generations model. By introducing random
shocks into the process of an expanding variety of intermediate products, the analysis
provides insight into the potential connection between research and development
(R&D) uncertainty and economic growth in a stochastic version of Romer's model of
technological change. Overall, the thesis presents a new perspective on studying the
effects of short-run shocks on long-run growth through R&D activities. The
comparative analyses show that long-run mean growth is sensitive to factors such as
rate of intertemporal substitution, variance of exogenous shocks, and persistence of
