A comment on: "Efficient propagation of shocks and the optimal return on money"

Pidong Huang, Yoske Igarashi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Lotteries are introduced into Cavalcanti and Erosa (2008) [2], a version of Trejos and Wright (1995) [4] with aggregate shocks. Lotteries improve welfare and eliminate the two notable features of the optimum with deterministic trades: over-production and history-dependence. Moreover, the optimum can be supported by buyer take-it-or-leave-it offers.
