Idiosyncratic risks, self-insurance, and stochastic bubbles

Author

  • Ohtaki, Eisei

Abstract

This article reconsiders the issue on stochastic bubbles first studied by Weil (1987) in an overlapping generations economy with idiosyncratic risks. Unlike Weil’s own result, stochastic bubbles can occur independently of the confidence level.
