Budget deficit and money holding when consumers live forever in an endogenous growth model
by Yasuhito Tanaka
JEA  2024, 81; 3(4), 81; 10.58567/jea03040007 - 15 December 2024

In this paper I will show that budget deficit (or fiscal deficit) is necessary to achieve full employment under constant prices or inflation, using a model of endogenous growth in which consumers hold money for the reason of liquidity and live forever. Budget deficit need not be offset by future budget surpluses. I consider the continuous time case by taking the limit of the di [...] Read more

In that paper, Krugman argued that under the price rigidity assumption, a shortage in the money supply leads [...] Read more
