Creator: Manuelli, Rodolfo E. and Wallace, Neil Series: Working paper (Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. Research Department) Number: 252 Abstract:
We study an overlapping generations model which contains a capital good that resembles actual gold. This capital good can he stored without physically depreciating and can, by using other resources, be converted back and forth between gold jewelry which yields utility directly and raw gold which does not.Under the assumption that the three utility-yielding objects—first and second period consumption and jewelry—are gross substitutes, stationary equilibria are shown to exist and are characterized; for some parameter values, there are inefficient equilibria, while for others there are efficient equilibria. Both types can be interpreted as commodity money equilibria.

Creator: Chari, V. V., Jagannathan, Ravi, and Jones, Larry E. Series: Working paper (Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. Research Department) Number: 316 Abstract:
In this paper, we characterize those situations in which after the introduction of futures markets there is either an unambiguous change in the volatility of spot prices or an unambiguous change in welfare. We provide examples of the usefulness of this approach by giving two alternative sets of sufficient conditions for price volatility to decline following the introduction of futures trading. We also provide a set of sufficient conditions for the introduction of futures trading to increase the welfare of all agents.
