The Liquidity Services of Money
This paper investigates the liquidity services provided by cash, interest-bearing "check balances," and "securities" which pay higher interest than checks. Securities must be traded before con sumers know their desired level or composition of consumption. Cash a nd checks are "more liquid" since they are available on demand. Cas h is "more liquid" than checks since it is more widely useable as a medium of exchange. Cash will often be used to buy goods which could be bought by check, and the demand for cash will be less sensitive t han the demand for checks to the interest paid on check balances.
