Money and bonds: an equivalence theorem

Narayana Kocherlakota ()

No 393, Staff Report from Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis

Abstract: This paper considers four models in which immortal agents face idiosyncratic shocks and trade only a single risk-free asset over time. The four models specify this single asset to be private bonds, public bonds, public money, or private money respectively. I prove that, given an equilibrium in one of these economies, it is possible to pick the exogenous elements in the other three economies so that there is an outcome-equivalent equilibrium in each of them. (The term ?exogenous variables? refers to the limits on private issue of money or bonds, or the supplies of publicly issued bonds or money.)
