Reciprocal Altruism and Pension System in Overlapping Generations Models


  • Kirill Borissov
  • Alexander Surkov


We analyze equilibrium paths in two models of overlapping generations with reciprocal altruism. The first one allows us to consider a case of different propensity to of consumer to support her children and parents (non-symmetrical altruism). In this model, an equilibrium is a Nash equilibrium. The second model describes a case equivalent to a situation, when two succeeding generations (not working parents and working children) have common budget. (in Russian)
