Time-Consistent Private Supplie of Outside Paper Money
This paper considers a monopolist’s supply of outside paper money in a random-matching model with divisible money and divisible goods. When binding supply announcements are feasible, the revenue-maximizing policy is characterized by an initial period where the monopolist initiates a currency reform which destroys the value of any old currency, and then issues new money, which the issuer taxes thereafter with a constant gross growth rate of money. It is shown that this policy is time-consistent if the trading history of the issuer is public information and if money demanders respond to the relevation of defection by playing autarky.
