Pareto optimal improvements for sunspots: The golden rule as a target for stabilization
AbstractThe stationary sunspot equilibria of a simple one good OLG economy are considered. These equilibria are known to be suboptimal. We show that, for any such equilibrium allocation, there always exists a Pareto optimal improvement which has the additional property of reaching the Golden Rule in finite time, i.e., the monetary steady state acts as a target. We also show that, in general, periodic allocations cannot be used as targets. The result is interpreted as a welfare theoretical justification for stabilization policy.
