Abstract

The paper introduces habit persistence in consumption decisions in an infinitely-lived agents monetary model with a cash-in-advance constraint. We show that strong enough habit persistence yields indeterminate equilibria. However, real indeterminacy is not per se sufficient to obtain a liquidity effect. The form of the beliefs matters.
