Money, Credit, and Allocation Under Complete Dynamic Contracts and Incomplete Markets

Abstract: We construct a dynamic heterogeneous-agent model with random uninsurable endowments. Two allocation mechanisms are considered, one with long-term complete credit arrangements under private information, and one with incomplete competitive markets. A role for money arises due to random limited participation. A Friedman rule is optimal in the first economy, and replicates a pure credit arrangement in the second. Computational results show that steady state allocations are quite different under the two arrangements, though the responses to changes in long-run inflation are similar.
