Abstract

In this paper we study the implications of random discount rates of future generations for saving behavior and capital holdings in steady-state competitive equilibrium. We examine conditions under which this randomness is sufficient for households other than the most patient to save, thus providing a simple and natural way to overcome a difficulty encountered in deterministic models.
