Abstract: Abstract We introduce Max Weber’s spirit of capitalism hypothesis into a benchmark Lucas’ tree asset pricing model by assuming that economic agents derive direct utility from wealth. We prove the existence of perfect foresight equilibria where the price-dividend ratio displays explosive rational bubble solutions, endogenous periodic cycles and chaotic dynamics.
