Woodford and Wicksell on Interest and Prices The Place of the Pure Credit Economy in the Theory of Monetary Policy
Knut Wickwell's "pure credit economy" and Michael Woodford's "cashless economy" have much in common whereas Wickwell's model was developed in order to extend an already existing theoretical framewok, Woodford's is presented as constituting, in and of itself, a foundation for the theory of monetary policy. But models of this type are sometimes inadequate guides to policy problems. This conclusion is illustrated with reference to international monetary issues and the so-called "zero-lower bound" problem.
