Economic Stability and Interest-Rate Controls in an Open-Economy Model with Productive Money


  • Seiya Fujisaki

    () (Department of Education, Shinshu University)


We analyze the relation between interest-rate controls and equilibrium determinacy in a two-country model in which money is employed as a factor of production. Given this specification, holding cash generates an opportunity cost. Therefore, equilibrium can be indeterminate even if both countries demonstrate additive-separable utilities between consumption and non-productive money.
