Problem Set 1: OLG Models Econ720. Fall 2009. Prof. Lutz Hendricks 1 An Economy with Land Consider a two-period OLG model in which production requires land and labor. Agents hold land as their M units per young household. The cohort size is constant and normalized to one. Each household supplies one unit of labor when young. (a) Write down the household±s budget constraints. Note that the household sells his land holdings at price q t +1 when old. Denote the purchase price of land by q t and its rental price by r t +1 . (b) Derive the household±s FOCs and Euler equation. Utility is u ( c y t ) + ( c o t +1 ) (c) has constant returns in land and labor: F ( M;L ) (d) (e) Derive an implicit solution for q in steady state. 2 OLG Model with Assets Consider a two-period OLG model. There are two types of households, indexed by h . In each period, a mass of 0.5 households is born of each type. Households receive endowments ( e y ;e o ) when young and old, respectively. Households issue or purchase one period bonds when young. Preferences are given by ln c y h;t ± + h ln c o h;t +1 ± .
