Abstract: This paper presents a model economy with endogenous credit constraints à la Kiyotaki-Moore and endogenous growth à la Uzawa-Lucas, in which agents face a trade-off between investing resources to improve the pledgeability of collateral assets and the accumulation of human capital. The model generates both growth miracles and stagnant economies.
