Abstract: This paper analyzes equilibrium intergenerational allocation of an exhaustible resource with amenity value in an overlapping generations (OLG) economy. The paper first reviews two allocation schemes and concludes the ‘trust fund’ scheme, which is deemed to be ‘intergenerationally democratic’, is preferred to the ‘grandfathering’ scheme, which represents the business-as usual practice of resource use. It then introduces knowledge accumulation into the model by imposing a public R&D sector that creates new knowledge. It concludes that augmented knowledge stock leads the economy to higher stationary consumption levels and larger stocks of the resource to be preserved forever in the steady states under both of the above schemes. This is because the introduction of a public R&D sector addresses externalities concerning the creation of new knowledge. Furthermore, the paper also concludes that through the manipulation of the new knowledge output over time, it is possible to achieve certain ‘democratic’ allocation effects under the business-as –usual practice without reallocating property rights among generations.
