Habit persistence in consumption preferences and durability of consumption goods are two hypotheses which imply time-nonseparability in the derived utility for consumption expenditures. 10. 26 March 2014 Abstract In this paper we use a dynamic programming approach to analytically solve an endogenous growth model with internal habits where the key parameters describing their formation, namely the intensity, persistence and lag structure (or memory), are kept generic. I consider both internal and external habit formation and both multiplicative and additive func-tional forms and, for a popular class of utility functions, –nd, surprisingly, that to a log-linear x�b```b``��������A��b�,'���dxX700�M3@�ct^p$i֮[?�u�eS� lya��ԣ��q4��7
