Example text

The exposition here borrows from Friedman’s (1969) original optimum quantity of money article and can be regarded as a diagrammatic exposition of the main ideas. We will conduct the discussion around the question of the optimum rate of change in the price level and in the money supply. 1 MOTIVATING THE MONEY IN THE UTILITY FUNCTION APPROACH: THE SINGLE-PERIOD, SINGLE-AGENT PROBLEM To motivate the money in the utility function assumption, we start from the problem of an agent who comes to period t with Mt−1 dollars and an endowment of z goods: x¯ t = (¯xt1 , .

We then use the infinite stream of dividends to augment consumption at τ > t. 22) except for the added index i. Since the endowment is a portfolio of n trees per agent the market clearing condition is: n Cˆ τ = dτi for all τ. 25) to get the equilibrium condition: ∞ pti = n βτ−t U n dτi τ=t+1 dti U i=1 dτi . 27) each individual wants to hold his initial portfolio of n trees and consume their fruits. Note that the dividend at time τ is multiplied by n Sτ = U n dτi i=1 dti . 28) i=1 In bad times, when ni=1 dτi is relatively small, the marginal utility of consumption is high and therefore Sτ is high.

57) Yt = Y − x; Yt+1 = Y + x(1 + r); Yτ = Y for τ < t and for τ > t + 1; kt = k + x and kτ = k for τ = t; mτ = m, bτ = 0 for all τ. 58) Yt = Y − x; Yt+1 = Y + x(1 + rm )(1 + i); Yτ = Y for τ < t and for τ > t + 1; bt = x and bτ = 0 for τ = t; mτ = m, kτ = k for all τ. 42) which can be approximated by: −ΔCt+1 /ΔCt ≈ 1 + f (m) − π. 60) The slope of the budget line if savings are invested in physical capital is: −ΔCt+1 /ΔCt = 1 + r. 61) And the slope of the budget line if savings are invested in bonds is (approximately): −ΔCt+1 /ΔCt = 1 + rb ≈ 1 + i − π.
