Ideas about what is "fair" above and beyond the individuals'position in the income ladder in ‡uence preferences for redistribution. We study the dynamic evolution of di¤erent economies in which redistributive policies , perception of fairness, inequality and growth are jointly determined. We show how including fairness explains various observed correlations(More)

We show that optimal intellectual property rights (IPR)(More)
We provide a refoundation of the symmetric growth equilibrium characterizing the research sector of vertical R&D-driven growth models. We argue that the usual assumptions made in this class of models leave the agents indi¤erent as to where targeting research: hence, the problem of the allocation of R&D investment across sectors is indeterminate.

Is China's rapid growth sustainable with the current institutions? Will the institution change if the growth slows down?

This paper develops a dynamic general equilibrium model to highlight the role of human capital accumulation of agents di¤erentiated by skill type in the joint determination of social mobility and the skill premium. We …rst show that our model captures the empirical co-movement of the skill premium, the relative supply of skilled to unskilled workers and(More)
