ECN 741: Public Economics Fall 2008 Note that this is the FOC with respect to a c t ( θ T ) at a particular draw θ T . But we know that c t ( θ T ) is θ t - measurable, therefore we don’t need to sum over all θ T D , but only those that contain the particular history θ t X θ T | θ t π ( θ T ) ω ( θ 1 ) u 0 ( c t ( θ T )) β t - 1 = λ/R t - 1 X θ T | θ t π ( θ T ) by measurability of c t ( θ T ) . u 0 ( c t ( θ T )) β t - 1 ω ( θ 1 ) = λ/R t - 1 Note: This implies that optimal c t ( θ T ) is actually θ 1 -measurable, i.e., it is independent from θ t for t > 1 . In other words there is full insurance. Note: The following Euler equation hold u 0 ( c t ( θ T )) = βR E ± u 0 ( c t +1 ( θ T )) | θ t ² planner is happy to allow access to outside trade. Note: Another Euler equation also holds. 1 u 0 ( c t ( θ T )) = λ - 1 β t -

Unformatted text preview: 1 R t-1 ( 1 ) = 1 R E 1 u ( c t +1 ( T )) | t 3.1.1 Inverse Euler Equation Consider again the original planning problem ( 43 )(with incentive constraints). Let ( c * ,y * ) be the solution to this problem. Now consider the following perturbation around ( c * ,y * ) y = y * c s = c * s for all s 6 = t,t + 1 (for xed t ) for all histories t u ( c t ( T )) + u ( c t +1 ( T )) = k + u ( c * t ( T )) + u ( c * t +1 ( T )) for all t +1 such that ( t +1 | t ) > 40...
