Here we prove the goodness property of adaptive rolling plans in a multisector optimal growth model under decreasing returns in deterministic environment. Goodness is achieved as a result of fast convergence (at an asymptotically geometric rate) of the rolling plan to balanced growth path. Further on, while searching for goodness, we give a new proof of strong concavity of an indirect utility function – this result is achieved just with help of some elementary matrix algebra and differential calculus.
