Demographic Variation, Capital Accumulation and Asset Prices

Author

Abstract

During the 1990s, asset prices increased significantly in North America and Western Europe and in particular in the United States. This surge in asset prices coincided with the baby boom generation entering its peak earnings and savings years. We use an OLG model with production to ask whether or not this demographic variation can account for the variation in asset prices and other macroeconomic aggregates.
