''Endogenous fluctuations and public services in a simple OLG economy''
( 2003, Vol. 5 No.10 )
In a simple OLG model, we introduce public services which work as a source of utility. Assuming constant returns to scale in the production, we show that public services promote the occurrence of local indeterminacy. In contrast to a lot of existing contributions which have exploited productive externalities, this paper establishes that the existence of externalities in the utility function can explain the emergence of endogenous fluctuations.
