A Characterization of Financeable Consumption Processes.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
This assumption is clearly not necessary since the restrictions, which the size of the random endowment places on the choice of the consumption process, depend only on the value ET , as we have shown in Proposition 2.2.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
The utility functional takes the from of utility of consumption U(c) = E R 1 0 U (ω , t, ct ) dt. (2) For κt = 0 for t < T , and κT = 1, we are looking at the utility of terminal wealth E[U (XT )], where U (x) = U (ω , T , x).

A(x) denotes the set of all dκ-densities of (x, E )-financeable consumption processes.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
Most of the existing approaches to optimal consumption start with equivalent martingale measures on FT and relate them the to stochastic processes on (Ft )t∈[0,T ] through some process of regularization.

Moreover, the optimal consumption density process ˆcx is Pκ -a.s. unique.
Utility Maximization with a Stochastic Clock and an Unbounded Random Endowment
The optimality of the consumption density process ˆcx follows from the fact that U(ˆcx ) = U(I( ˆQy )) = V( ˆQy ) + hI( ˆQy ), ˆQy i = V( ˆQy ) + hI( ˆQy ), ( ˆQy )r i = v(y ) − yv ′ (y ) = u(x), using Lemma A.3 and the conjugacy of u(·) and v(·).
