How Many Karats Is Gold: Welfare Effects of Easing a Denomination Standard
AbstractMost consumers benefit from a lowering of the required amount of aurous metal which jewelers must include in products sold as "gold." However, profits of producers of gold-plated adornments fall. The net welfare effect depends on whether the principal difference between consumers is their appreciation of the gold content, or their valuation of designation gold or gold-plated.
