On the Concavity of the Consumption Function with a Quadratic Utility under Liquidity Constraints
AbstractThis paper demonstrates the concavity of the consumption function of infinitely living households under liquidity constraints who are not prudent - i.e. with a quadratic utility. The concavity of the consumption function is closely related to the 3-convexity of the value function.
