We propose an equilibrium asset pricing model that incorporates the important characteristics of the habit formation model of Campbell and Cochrane (1999). The model can explain the term structures of both equity returns and interest rates, while maintains the ability to explain key time series properties of returns. It also matches the empirical facts on the Sharpe ratio for dividend strips and bonds. The key is to decompose the habit into two components. Overall, the model provides micro-foundations for the value premium.
