In this paper we use a simple model with a single Cobb–Douglas firm and a consumer with a CRRA utility function to show the difference between the equity premia in the production-based Brock model and the consumption-based Lucas model. With this simple example we show that the equity premium in the production-based model exceeds that of the consumption-based model with probability 1.
