The purpose of the present paper is to highlight some features of global dynamics of the two-sector growth model with accumulation of human and physical capital analyzed by Brito, P. and Venditti, A. (2010). In particular, we explore two cases where the Brito-Venditti system admits two balanced growth paths each of them corresponding, after a change of variables, to an equilibrium point of a 3-dimensional system. In the former one, the two stationary states have, respectively, a 2-dimensional and a 1-dimensional stable manifold (i.e. they are, in the Brito-Venditti terminology, locally indeterminate of order 2 and determinate, respectively). In the latter case, instead, the stable manifolds of the two equilibria have, respectively, dimension two and three (i.e. they are locally indeterminate of order 2 and 3). In both cases we prove the possible existence of points P such that in any neighborhood of P lying on the plane corresponding to a fixed value of the state variable there exist points Q whose positive trajectories tend to either equilibrium point. Moreover we show examples where the 2-dimensional stable manifold of the order 2 locally indeterminate equilibrium, in the former case, and the basin of the attracting equilibrium, in the latter case, are proven to be both unbounded.
