Lack-Of-Recall And Centralized Monetary Trade
We introduce "lack-of-recall" of past transactions as an alternative assumption to anonymity in a model where trade is centralized. In environments where there is an intertemporal lack-of-double-coincidence of wants problem and lack-of-commitment, lack-of-recall can give rise to monetary equilibria that dominate nonmonetary outcomes in terms of welfare.
