Abstract: It is shown that the stochastic model of transaction and precautionary demand for money developed by Frenkel and Jovanovic can be made general even within the purview of their restricted treatment of the problem of estimation of optimal money holdings. While all the predecessor models on optimal money holdings assume the consumption decision to be an exogenous factor outside the realm of the model, the present treatment endogenizes the consumption decision by including an additional decision-dependent parameter in the very structure of the generalized model. In our model, it has been found that contrary to the Baumol–Tobin and Frenkel–Jovanovic models, the interest elasticity is positive when the consumption decisions are endogenous.
