Money and Credit in a Production Economy
AbstractIn this paper we combine liquidity constrained lenders and borrowers in a market for investment projects that is characterized by incomplete information. The assumption of different probability distributions of the investment projects creates an adverse selection problem which gives rise to credit rationing in the loan market. Monetary policy has real effects, interacts with both the degree of liquidity and the degree of credit rationing, and alters the aggregate level of capital stock and its marginal productivity.
