Abstract

"Money *nAleksander BerentsennEconomics Departement, University of Basel, SwitzerlandnJune 10, 2003nAbstractnThis paper considers a monopolist’s supply of outside paper money in a random-matchingnmodel with divisible money and divisible goods. When binding supplynannouncements are feasible, the revenue-maximizing policy is characterized by anninitial period where the monopolist initiates a currency reform which destroys thenvalue of any old currency, and then issues new money, which the issuer taxes thereafternwith a constant gross growth rate of money. It is shown that this policy is time-consistentnif the trading history of the issuer is public information and if moneyndemanders respond to the relevation of defection by playing autarky."

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
