Rate-of-Return Dominance and Efficiency in an Experimental Economy
One of the main challenges for monetary economics is to explain the use of assets that are dominated in rate-of-return as media of exchange. In this paper, we use experimental methods to study how a fiat money might come to be used in transactions when an identically marketable, dividend-bearing asset, a consol, is also available.
