A Note on the Core of a Monetary Economy

Abstract

This note shows that there are monetary equilibria in the model of overlapping generations that are in the core. These equilibria have positive stocks of outside money in every generation, and they support Pareto-optimal equilibrium allocations. These equilibria are thus self-enforcing, and introducing money into an economy with infinitely many agents need not be tantamount to contriving a new social institution designed to enforce sequential contracts between generations.
