Abstract

In a model of overlapping generations with a continuum of finitely lived individuals, the aggregate price dynamics is characterized by a functional differential equation of mixed type. Delays and advances are exogenous when age at retirement is mandatory; they become state-dependent when individuals are allowed to choose their age at retirement. Using the Hopf bifurcation theorem, periodic solutions in the neighborhood of the monetary steady state appearing with a mandatory retirement age vanish with a chosen age.
