    This should also result in more substantial influence of the adjustment costs in the capital accumulation technology: Jermann [1998], for instance, requires habit formation in the utility specification in order for q-Theory to play a significant role.Google Scholar

    In addition to this, Shiller [1998] emphasizes two more dimensions of societal risk sharing. An intragenerational dimension of risk sharing is justified by similar reasons of market failure as the intergenerational one: when risks materialize before agents are old, or before they are capable of making risk management arrangements for themselves, only public risk-management devices can effectively allow elderly to pool the chance that some of them have higher income than others. And with open economies, there is the possibility of international risk sharing. Shiller [1993] gives the theoretical basis for such international trading in different components of national income.Google Scholar
