Which Improves Welfare More : Nominal or Indexed Bond ?
AbstractEconomists have long argued that loan contracts should be indexed to remove the risks arising from fluctuations in the purchasing power of money: indexation however while eliminating one risk, substitutes another, arising from fluctuations in relative prices of goods. We present a theoretical framework which allows to assess, in a general equilibrium framework, the relative merits of a nominal versus an indexed bond.
