Findings from F. Alvarez and Co-Authors in the Area of Macroeconomics Reported

May 9, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Economics Week -- Current study results on Macroeconomics have been published. According to news originating from Rome, Italy, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "We present a monetary model with segmented asset markets that implies a persistent fall in interest rates after a once-and-for-all increase in liquidity."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "The gradual propagation mechanism produced by our model is novel in the literature. We provide an analytical characterization of this mechanism, showing that the magnitude of the liquidity effect on impact, and its persistence, depend on the ratio of two parameters: the long-run interest rate elasticity of money demand and the intertemporal substitution elasticity."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The model simultaneously explains the short-run 'instability' of money demand estimates as well as the stability of long-run interest-elastic money demand."
