Growth, inflation, and economic policy in a stochastic cash-in-advance economy
We develop a continuous-time stochastic growth model with recursive preferences, money and public debt. In equilibrium growth and inflation follow geometric Brownian motions, with parameters determined by solving a system of nonlinear equations. Permanent changes in government expenditures and taxes have both real and nominal effects producing often reverse Mundell-Tobin effects. Superneutrality holds when money supply changes are caused by open market operations, irrespective of the primary fiscal stance. The magnitude of the policy effects are examined using a calibrated version of the model.
