On the Equivalence of Private and Public Money

Markus Brunnermeier () and Dirk Niepelt ()

No 19.05, Working Papers from Swiss National Bank, Study Center Gerzensee

Abstract: We develop a generic model of money and liquidity that identifies sources of liquidity bubbles and seignorage rents. We provide suffcient conditions under which a swap of monies leaves the equilibrium allocation and price system unchanged. We apply the equivalence result to the "Chicago Plan," cryptocurrencies, the Indian de-monetization experiment, and Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). In particular, we show why CBDC need not undermine financial stability.
