Optimal Growth when Tastes are Inherited
We address the issue of optimal growth when standard-of-living aspirations are transmitted from one generation to the next. We derive the condition for the optimal solution to be stable in the saddle-point sense and show that this optimal solutionmay display damped oscillations even when the planner does not discount the utility of future generations (golden rule case).
