Sectoral Bubbles and Endogenous Growth

No WP2011-032, Boston University - Department of Economics - Working Papers Series from Boston University - Department of Economics

Abstract: Stock price bubbles are often on productive assets and occur in a sector of the economy. In addition, their occurence is often accompanied with credit booms. Incorporating these features, we provide a two-sector endogenous growth model with credit-driven stock price bubbles. Bubbles have a credit easing effect by relaxing collateral constraints and improving investment efficiency. Sectoral bubbles also have a capital reallocation effect in the sense that bubbles in a sector attract more capital to be allocated to that sector. Their impact on economic growth depends on the interplay between these two effects.
