Abstract: In this paper we examine a nonstationary multisector growth model with uncertainty in which future utilities are discounted. First we establish the existence of strongly optimal programs emanating from a given initial capital stock. Then we show that this optimal program $ \hat x$ is sustained by a system of prices $ \hat p$ so that the pair $ [\hat x,\hat p]$ is competitive and a strong transversality condition holds. We also show that competitiveness and transversality imply optimality.
