The discrete rate of change in real balances is: (mt − mt−1 )/mt−1 = (1 + μ)/(1 + π) − 1 = (1 + μ)(1 + rm ) − 1. 36) Note that when μ = π, the level of real balances is constant regardless of whether we use discrete or continuous time. 8 CHANGE IN THE RATE OF MONEY SUPPLY CHANGE: ECONOMICS We use a discrete time analysis. At the beginning of each period, before the beginning of trade, the government transfers to the representative agent Gt dollars in a lump sum form. t. Mt + Pt Yt = Pt Y¯ + Mt−1 + Gt ; Mt ≥ 0, Yt ≥ 0, and M0 is given.

Since it is not possible for all agents to move to B they end up moving to the previous equilibrium: point E. The mathematics of this argument is quite simple. If P solves the equilibrium condition f (M/P) = ρ then 2P solves f (2M/2P) = ρ. What will happen if the government announces a policy of doubling the money supply each month? We will see that this thought experiment is not trivial. We start from some technical aspects of this question. 7 CHANGE IN THE RATE OF MONEY SUPPLY CHANGE: TECHNICAL ASPECTS We start from the continuous time case which is a useful approximation for the discrete time case used in the theoretical analysis which follows.

5 . Here consumption is 4 units in odd periods and 9 units in even periods. 5 . In odd periods this is: U (4) = 1/2 and in even periods it is: U (9) = 1/3. Suppose we evaluate the assets in an even period t. 5 in odd periods and Sτ = U (9)/U (9) = 1 in even periods. We now calculate the stream of dividends 24 INTRODUCTION TO MONETARY ECONOMICS multiplied by the ratio of the marginal utilities: τ = t + 1, t + 2, t + 3, t + 4 . . 0 . . 0 . . 0 . . 0 . . 0 . . 0 . . 0 . . τ−t S d to show that the price We can now apply the asset pricing formula pti = ∞ τ τi τ=t+1 β of a type 2 tree is higher than the price of a type 3 tree.
