Introductory remarks on publicationslist

I consider my joint work with Dirk Niepelt, "The future of social security", published in the Journal of Monetary Economics in 2008 to be my best publication to date. We develop a dynamic voting model for social security and solve the Markov-perfect politico-economic equilibrium for the expected demographic transition in the US over the next 50 years, not just a comparison of steady states. Another novel feature of our paper is that we provide a flexible framework that allows for closed-form solutions to policy functions. This framework is given by the Diamond (1965) model augmented by probabilistic voting for aggregation of political preferences and under the assumptions of logarithmic preferences and Cobb-Douglas production function.
