Interiority of the Optimal Population Growth Rate with Endogenous Fertility

Gemma Abio

No 96, Working Papers in Economics from Universitat de Barcelona. Espai de Recerca en Economia

Abstract: This paper analyzes the issue of the interiority of the optimal population growth rate in a two-period overlapping generations model with endogenous fertility. Using Cobb-Douglas utility and production functions, we show that the introduction of a cost of raising children allows for the possibility of the existence of an interior global maximum in the planners problem, contrary to the exogenous fertility case.
