Stochastic dynamic models with stock-dependent rewards

Yaw Nyarko, Lars J. Olson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We examine the behavior of optimal consumption and investment policies in aggregate stochastic growth models when utility depends on both consumption and the stock level. Such models arise in the study of renewable resources, monetary growth, and growth with public capital. Conditions are given which guarantee that optimal policies are monotonic. The limiting behavior of the optimal consumption, investment, and output processes is characterized.
