Fiscal Policies in a Stochastic Model with Hyperbolic Discounting
AbstractIn this paper, we study the effects of fiscal policies on economy in a stochastic model with hyperbolic discounting rate. With specific assumptions on the production technology, preferences, and stochastic shocks, we derive the explicit solutions to the growth rates of consumption and savings and equilibrium returns on all assets, and give the effects of fiscal policies and discounting rate on growth.
