Intertemporal equilibrium models, portfolio theory and the capital asset pricing model

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Intertemporal equilibrium models of the kind discussed in (Asset pricing, Princeton University Press, Princeton, 2001) have become the standard paradigm in most advanced asset pricing courses. The purpose of this chapter is to explain the relationship between this paradigm and the portfolio theory paradigm common in most of the prior asset pricing literature. We show that these paradigms are merely different ways of looking at the same economic phenomena, and that insights can be gained from each approach.
