An Empirical Investigation of Asset Pricing with Temporally Dependent Preference Specifications

Author

  • Heaton, John

Abstract

Using a simulated method of moments approach, the author evaluates a representative consumer asset pricing model in which the consumer is assumed to have time nonseparable preferences of several forms. Examining the model's implications for several moments of asset returns, he finds evidence for the local substitution of consumption with habit formation occurring over longer periods of time. The interaction between these two effects is important. The author also shows that, when accounting for sampling error, a model with local substitution and long-run habit persistence is consistent with the Hansen and Jagannathan (1991) bounds.
