Abstract

We examine the implications of technological change which results in large-scale capital depreciation for the macrodynamic and financial properties of a dynamic general equilibrium model. In an economy where investors fear a capital-devaluing change in technology, the introduction of the possibility of such an event helps to resolve the equity premium and risk-free rate puzzles.
