economics Assume that each consumer has zero financial wealth at birth and that they have three lifecycles: youth, middle age, and old age. The first two periods are spent at work, while the third is spent at retirement. In the first period, they make $5, in the second,$25, and in the third, nothing. The real interest rate, inflation, and predicted inflation are all equal to zero. What was work pay at the start of life worth today, discounted? What is the maximum sustainable consumption level that will ensure equal consumption throughout the course of the three periods?
