Home Production Meets Time-To-Build
An innovation in this paper is to introduce a time-to-build technology for the production of market capital into a model with home production. The paper’s main finding is that the two anomalies that have plagued all household production models-the positive correlation between business and household investment, and household investment leading business investment over the business cycle-are resolved when time-to-build is added.
