Gong and Zou  studied and explained the equity premium puzzle with the domestic output process satisfying a diffusion stochastic differential equation. In this paper, we further study and arrive at a positive solution of the equity premium puzzle based on the domestic output process satisfying a jump-diffusion stochastic differential equation. The conclusions obtained here can be regarded as a natural generalization
of the work by Gong and Zou .
