We explore dynamics in an OG economy under pure exchange and Stone-Geary preferences with positive level of saving and non-negative public debt and a relatively small second period endowment. We show the existence of a nontrivial steady state, which is either determinate or indeterminate. Furthermore, and importantly, there can be only two cycles, but no cycles of higher order.
