''On the stationary distribution of income and wealth in a growing economy with endogenous labor supply''
( 2023, Vol. 43 No.1 )
 
 
In the context of a perpetual youth model with capital, we explore the effect of the labor supply behavior of households on the stationary distributions of income and wealth. Assuming that the households have Greenwood--Hercowitz--Huffman preferences, we show that inequality in income and wealth distributions increase with the elasticity of labor supply.
 
 
Keywords: capital accumulation, endogenous labor supply, wealth inequity, Pareto distribution
