These are real variables because they are in terms of goods and services (i.e., they are adjusted for the effects of price changes). In this chapter, we focus on nominal variables such as the price level, the inflation rate, and the nominal interest rate. In the long run, there is a separation between nominal and real variables.

Cagan’s Model of Hyperinflation Revised: April 4, On first glance, hyperinflations seem like pure chaos. In a classic article, the Chicago economist Phillip Cagan developed a simple model which does surprisingly well at accounting for the behavior of inflation and the demand for money even the midst of such dramatic Size: 65KB.

Cagan’s motivation behind the demand for money function was mainly in terms of transactions costs and its relationship to the consumer’s ability to affect the real value of cash balances.

Cagan’s () model is the seminal work in the empirical analysis of hyperinflations. Recently, cointegration methods have been applied to the model in which the demand for real balances is predominantly determined by the expected rate of future inflation (Taylor, ; Phylakis and Taylor, ; Engsted,Ashworth, J., and L.

CAGAN'S MODEL OF HYPERINFLATION UNDER RATIONAL EXPECTATIONS* BY LAWRENCE J. CHRISTIANO' 1. INTRODUCTION In Cagan published what has become a classic paper on the demand for money during hyperinflation.

In that paper, the demand for real cash balances is a function of the public's expectation of the future course of inflation. Cagan.

In monthly studies of high and hyperinflation (e.g. Taylor,Phylaktis and Taylor,Engsted,Petrović and Vujošević, ) it has been well documented that real money balances cointegrate with inflation rate, hence supporting the Cagan money demand. Moreover, the existence of this cointegration implies a super-consistent Cited by: 9.

Cagan Model under Rational Expectations: Discrete Time February 9, 1 Classical Model of the Price Level Rational expectations hypothesis: the expectations relevant to economic outcomes are appropriately proxied by the forecasts derived from the economist’s model.

Following Cagan (), we use a semi-logarithmic demand for real cash balances, known as Cagan demand for money. Then, expressed in real terms, the demand for real cash balances can be written in the following way.

(1) In this equation represents the expected rate of inflation, and are parameters. The role of constant is to describe the.

Cagan's most important contribution to economics, however, is the article included in Milton Friedman's edited volume Studies in the Quantity Theory of Money (), entitled "The Monetary Dynamics of Hyperinflation," a work that became an "instant classic" in the mater: University of Chicago (MA, PhD), UCLA (BA).

B) a rise in money growth leads to a fall in consumption and a rise in investment. Cagan reached his conclusions by using adaptive expectations. Later on, in Tom Sargent and Neil Wallace introduced rational ex-pectations into the Cagan™s model.2 The solutions to this model with rational expectations is the essence of this set of exercises.

The worst hyperinflation ever recorded took place in Hungary in at the end of World War II. As in Germany, the hyperinflation that occurred in Hungary was a result of a requirement to pay.

InPhillip Cagan wrote The Monetary Dynamics of Hyperinflation, the book often regarded as the first serious study of hyperinflation and its effects (though The Economics of Inflation by C. Bresciani-Turroni on the German hyperinflation was published in Italian in ).In his book, Cagan defined a hyperinflationary episode as starting in the month that the monthly inflation rate exceeds.

The run-up to hyperinflation has been characterized by a broad array of economic distortions, including capital con-trols, many forms of financial repression, segmented foreign exchange markets, and outright corruption.

Feliner and B. Haley. Using a variant of the Cagan model with rational expectations, this paper shows that expected stabilisation can result in a budget deficit in excess of the maximum inflation tax. A cap on the deficit dampens inflation expectations and raises real balances thus increasing the yield of the inflation tax for any given rate of inflation.

My sense is that once interest rates start to rise, the other shoe (a big one) will drop and property values will decline (except maybe for farmland).

In other words, people hold money for its purchasing power, for the amount of goods they can buy with it.实际余额:货币存量的实际值。 1) Real money demand is unchanged when the price level increases, and all real variables, such as the interest rate, real income, and real wealth.
