Government Expenditure Financing in an Endogenous Growth Model: A Comparison
This paper develops a generalized cash-in-advance model of endogenous growth to assess the relative merits of money and income-tax financing of a constant share of government expenditure in GNP. The authors find that money financing (seigniorage) leads to higher growth and inflation rates, pointing out to a trade-off between growth and inflation. Nevertheless, they also find that the financing policy that maximizes welfare is, in general, a mix of the two methods, with the weights depending crucially on the fraction of investment purchases that are subject to the cash-in-advance constraint.
