The problem at hand is easily solved by hand in about 60 seconds.

To solve algebraically you need to give a numerical value to b, and then
only certain values lead to simple closed-form solution. Otherwise, you have
to solve numerically.
Algebraic example:
b = 1/2;
Solve[w - k^(1 - b)*r*((-((a*k^b - OverBar[y])/a))^
(1/b))^(-1 + b) == 0, k]
gives
{{k -> (w^2*OverBar[y]^2)/(a^2*(-r + w)^2)},
{k -> (w^2*OverBar[y]^2)/(a^2*(r + w)^2)}}
Numerical example:
b = 0.4;
w = 1;
a = 1;
r = 1;
OverBar[y] = 1;
NSolve[w - k^(1 - b)*r*((-((a*k^b - OverBar[y])/a))^
(1/b))^(-1 + b) == 0, k]
gives
{{k -> 0.17677669529663688110021109052621}}
