Asset prices and liquidity in an exchange economy

Contents:

Author Info

  • Lagos, Ricardo

Abstract

An asset-pricing model is developed, in which financial assets are valued for their liquidity--the extent to which they are useful in facilitating exchange--as well as for being claims to streams of consumption goods. The theory is used to study the implications of this liquidity channel for average asset returns, the equity-premium puzzle and the risk-free rate puzzle.
