Duality and liquidity constraints under uncertainty

By Vassilis Hajivassiliou and Yannis Ioannides


A dual approach to the problem of maximizing lifetime utility subject to liquidity constraints in discrete time leads to a dual dynamic programming formulation which links commodity and asset demand theory under uncertainty with Frisch demand theory. We establish the existence of a threshold level of wealth, that characterizes constrained behavior. We explore the power of the dual approach for empirical work
