Fiat Money in the Kiyotaki-Wright Model

S. Aiyagari and Neil Wallace ()

Economic Theory, 1992, vol. 2, issue 4, 447-64

Abstract: We study versions of the Kiyotaki-Wright (1989) model with fiat money and show that: (1) The use of a low storage cost fiat money may he necessary for specialization and trade, (2) there can be valued fiat money steady states which are indeterminate, (3) there are no nontrivial steady-states in which all trades consist of fiat money for goods, (4) fiat money may be valued even if it is not the least costly-to-store object, and lastly, (5) two fiat monies with different storage costs may both be valued.
