Abstract:

The author is concerned with a one-good economy. The good can be used at any period of time for production or consumption. If x units are put into production in period t then f sup t x omega sup t units become available as outputs in period t 1 where omega sup t is a random variable with known distribution. If c units are consumed in period t this produces u sup tc units of satisfaction or utility to the society in that period. The main interest is the study of qualitative properties of optimal solutions for a problem in which we maximize the total expected utility accumulated in t periods. Author Modified Abstract
