Abstract

It is shown that although government debt in principle has an ambiguous effect on the steady state capital stock in an OLG model of the Blanchard-Cass-Yaari variety, once stability of the steady state equilibrium is imposed there is an unambiguous negative relation between the level of government debt and the capital stock.
