Forward-Looking, Stochastic Cash Management and the Demand for Money
This paper aims to connect money demand theory with optimal inventory theory and with time series evidence. An agent's problem of minimizing cash-management costs is of a familiar threshold form. Closed-form expressions are derived in a special case. The theory implies that expected future interest rates may influence money holdings despite the absence of strictly convex adjustment cots. A distributed-lag expression for these holdings is proposed in which the adjustment and expectations dynamics are derived from theory.
