Welfare costs of inflation : the case for interest-bearing money and empirical estimates for Brazil
AbstractWe provide in this paper a closed fonn for the Welfare Cost of Inflationwhich we prove to be closer than Bailey's expression to the correct solution of thecorresponding non-separable differential equation. Next. we extend this approachto ao economy with interest-bearing money, once again presenting a betterappoximation than the one given by Bailey's approach. Fmally, empiricalestimates for Brazil are presented.
