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."
