Abstract

This paper develops a new life cycle model that aims to describe the savings and asset allocation decisions of boundedly rational agents. The paper’s main theoretical contribution is the provision of a simple, tractable and parsimonious framework within which agents make forward looking decisions in the absence of full contingent planning. Instead, agents pursue two simple so-called feasibility goals. The paper uses this framework to shed light on important empirical patterns of asset allocation that are puzzling from the point of view of existing models.
