Life Cycle Saving} Consider a consumer who is employed for $T+1$ periods: $t=0,1,. ..,T$. During each period of employment, the consumer receives labor income $w_{t}$, which as the notation indicates can vary over time. Let $k_{t}$ denote the consumer's stock of assets at the beginning of period $t$, and assume that $k_{0}=0$, so that the consumer begins his or her career with no assets. For all $t=1,2,. ..,T$, $k_{t}$ can be negative; that is, the consumer is allowed to borrow. However, the consumer must eventually save for retirement, a requirement that is captured by imposing the constraint $$ k_{T+1} \geq k^{*} > 0 $$ on the terminal value of the stock of wealth. Let $r_{t}$ be the interest rate earned on savings, or paid on debt, during each
