Optimal Consumption and Portfolio Rules with Durability and Local Substitution
AbstractA model of optimal consumption and portfolio choice that captures the notions of local substitution and irreversible purchases of durable goods is studied. Necessary and sufficient conditions for a consumption and portfolio policy to be optimal are provided. A closed-form solution of the optimal consumption and portfolio policy is given. The optimal consumption policy consists of a possible initial "gulp" of consumption, or a period of no consumption, followed.by a process of accumulated consumption with singular sample paths. The equilibrium risk premium in a representative investor economy with a single physical production technology is computed. Copyright 1993 by The Econometric Society.
