Have we missed the right version of the Ramsey model?
Unexpectedly, and as a result of a simple exercise of intellectual curiosity, the resolution of the Ramsey growth problem with a Utility function underlying relative preferences for consumption and savings, provides remarkable results and interpretations. An advanced microeconomic analysis of this particular assumption which follows consequently, and presumably the sole one of the literature, appears to bring important new insights to the consumer theory, and to lead reasonably to the question of the validity of the current version of the Ramsey model.
