Imperfect Information, Money, and Economic Growth
AbstractThis paper develops an endogenous growth model with financial market imperfections to study the effects of money on economic growth and to examine the role of informational imperfections in the determination of the equilibrium growth path. The findings are summarized as follows: economic growth is slower when there is imperfect information; changes in money growth have qualitatively similar effects on economies with and without private information; and, contrary to the popular view that informational imperfections in credit markets or borrowing constraints tend to amplify the impact of policy interventions, economies with private information are less responsive to changes in monetary policy.
