Income, Consumption and Permanent Income in Relation to Household Well-Being and Poverty Ramses H. Abul Naga¤ and Enrico Bolzaniy July 1, Abstract The life-cycle consumption model is used to obtain an empirical frame-work for the joint dependence of household income and consumption on permanent income.   The models considered in this book until now treat consumption in a very simple way. In the Solow model, individuals save a constant fraction of their income. In the main short-run model,people consume aconstant fraction ofpotential output. Inthis chapter, we developwhat might be called theneoclassical consumption model. nel through which stock prices influence the real sector is the effect wealth has on consumption (the “wealth effect”). A simple form of the permanent income hypothesis implies that consumption is proportional to the total value of current assets. When the value of consumer’s assets increases, con-sumption should rise in proportion.
