Computing Multiperiod, Information-Constrained Optima
This paper presents a detailed theoretical derivation and justification for methods used to compute solutions to a multiperiod (including infinite-period), continuum-agent, unobserved-effort economy. Actual solutions are displayed illustrating cross-sectional variability in consumption and labor effort in the population at a point in time and variability for a typical individual over time. The optimal tradeoff between insurance and incentives is explored and the issue of excess variability is addressed by consideration of the analogue full-information economy and various restricted-contracting regimes.
