Reflections on Monetary Economics: Eggertsson & Mehrotra and SFC Models

Reflections on Monetary Economics: Eggertsson & Mehrotra and SFC Models | money money money | Scoop.it
  1. I'm very interested in the new paper from Gaudi Eggertsson and Neil Mehrotra (E&M) on secular stagnation.  What they have done is to adapt a simple overlapping generations model like Samuelson's consumption-loan model so that the financial asset is represented by a corresponding liability of other agents in the model.  This is very similar to something I myself posted on recently, but whereas I used land purchase as the motivation for private borrowing, they have households borrowing to finance consumption ahead of earning income.
