An Integral Equation Representation for Overlapping Generations in Continuous Time
|Keywords:||overlapping generations;continuous time;life-cycle;intertemporal prices|
|Abstract:||This paper develops a method for solving for the dynamic general equilibrium of a deterministic continuous time overlapping generations model with a finite-horizon life-cycle. The model has isoelastic preferences and allows for general assumptions about individual endowments and demographics. Solving for an equilibrium reduces to solving a nonlinear integral equation. In the special case of log utility, the integral equation is linear and global approximations to a solution are easily computed with linear algebra.|
