The Transfer Paradox in the One-Sector Overlapping Generations Model
AbstractThis paper examines the effects of international income transfers on capital accumulationand welfare in a one-sector overlapping generations model. It is shown that a strong form ofthe transfer paradox â€“ in which the donor country experiences a welfare gain while therecipient country experiences a welfare loss â€“ may occur both in and out of steady state. Inaddition, it is shown that a weak form of the transfer paradox â€“ where either the donor orrecipient (but not both) experiences a paradoxical welfare effect â€“ may characterize allsegments of the transition path not already characterized by the strong transfer paradox.
