Abstract

Bubbles and money holding can reabsorb capital overaccumulation and restore the MGR in exogenous growth OLG economies. In contrast, under productive externalities and endogenous growth, bubbles and monetary saving can worsen an already inefficient underaccumulation. Under a simple credit market imperfection, we prove that bubbles can fluctuate around a bubbly balanced growth path as sunspot equilibria with shortrun effects on the saving rate.
