Jean-Michel Grandmont sheds mild in this advanced topic through the use of the analytical ideas of common equilibrium concept along the tools of financial research. The e-book warns opposed to the indiscriminate use of the rational expectancies speculation whilst coming near near this subject, and conversely stresses the common sense statement that short-run studying procedures are one of the most vital features of monetary brokers. Grandmont argues that such strategies are deserving of cautious theoretical learn, and the result's a transparent and rigorous research of the entire concerns concerned.

It is clear from this diagram that whenever m is positive, the trader's optimum consumption cx exceeds his endowment ex if and only if the marginal rate of substitution between real balances and consumption evaluated at the point (el9 mlpi) is less than 1. When the utility function u is of the form w(cx) + 8w(c2), where w is strictly concave, differentiable, and where 8 is a parameter between 0 and 1, this condition reads: Pi w'[e2 + < 1 This is of course the same condition that was obtained in the previous section when directly analyzing the trader's intertemporal optimization program.

Remark. In this section, it was explicitly specified that a stationary equilibrium is one in which money has positive value. Under our assumptions on utility functions and endowments, it can be shown using standard methods of equilibrium theory that a stationary equilibrium exists in which money has zero value. In the case of a single good it corresponds to the autarkic state, where every consumer consumes his own endowment in every period of his life. 7 The neutrality of money We will end this chapter with a few remarks about the "neutrality" of money in the simple model under consideration.
