The Optimal Quantity of Money in Overlapping Generations Models and in Models with a Representative Consumer
For modern macroeconomic theory the infinitely lived representative agent model and the overlapping generations model, are the two most important frameworks of analysis.

When it comes to monetary policy however both models give a different answer to the question of the optimal quantity of money. This paper takes a first step in comparing these two different results.
