A macroeconomic model of liquidity crises

Keiichiro Kobayashi and Tomoyuki Nakajima ()

No 14-003E, CIGS Working Paper Series from The Canon Institute for Global Studies

Abstract: We develop a simple macroeconomic model that captures key features of a liquidity crisis. During a crisis, the supply of short-term loans vanishes, the interest rate rises sharply, and the level of economic activity declines. A crisis may be caused either by self-ful lling beliefs or by fundamental shocks. It occurs as a result of market failure due to debt overhang in short-term loans. The government's commitment to deposit guarantee reduces the likelihood of self-ful lling crisis but increases that of fundamental crisis.
