Synopsis

This book contributes to the lively discussion about the reasons for and thepossible implications of the occurrence of non-linear phenomena and chaos indynamic economic systems. The author takes a fresh look at intertemporal decision problems and shows how the time preference rate of the decision maker relates to the dynamic complexity of the optimal paths. It turns out that in order to get complicated or chaotic optimal paths the decision maker has to be sufficiently impatient. In this sense, the Minimum Impatience Theorems supplement the existing literature on "turnpike theorems" and global asymptotic stability of normative economic systems. The framework in which the results are derived is a very general dynamic optimization problem with recursive (stationary) utility functionals. Both the case where time is a discrete variable and the case of continuous time models are treated.
