Process Consistency and Monetary Reform: Further Evidence and Implications

Robert Flood () and Peter Garber

No 635, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: In this paper we provide additional evidence that process consistency may have materialized as a restrictive constraint on the money generation process. In addition to recomputing the time series of process consistency probabilities using new data from the German case, we also supply our empirical technique to the data from the other hyperinflations studied by Cagan. We interpret our results as evidence hearing on the type of transversality condition studied by Brock or by Brock and Scheinkman as a sufficient condition to insure a unique equilibrium in optimizing models with perfect foresight and money.
