Demographic Variation, Capital Accumulation and Asset Prices
During the 1990s, asset prices increased significantly in North America and Western Europe and in particular in the United States.

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.
