The Distribution of Money and Prices in an Equilibrium with Lotteries


Berentsen, Aleksander; Camera, Gabriele; Waller, Christopher (2004). The Distribution of Money and Prices in an Equilibrium with Lotteries. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 174, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We construct a tractable model of divisible money and equilibrium heterogeneity in money balances and prices. We do so by considering randomized monetary trades in a standard search-theoretic model of money where agents can hold multiple units of indivisible 'tokens'. By studying a simple trading pattern, we can generate monetary distributions that match those observed in numerically simulated economies with fully divisible money and price heterogeneity.
