We can also reach the SSE price level if we follow a path like ABB in which initially the rate of inflation is less than the steady state rate. We cannot reach the SSE price level if we follow a path like AA in which the rate of inflation is less than the SSE rate during the entire transition period. 1 at least during part of the transition period. 32). Since in the new steady state agents want to hold less real balances, they must decumulate real balances during the transition period. Since the rate of change in m is μ − π, this can be done only if π > μ at least during part of the transition period.

We use two alternative ways of deriving the Bellman equation. One follows Stokey and Lucas with Prescott (1989) who starts with an infinite horizon problem. The other follows Sargent (1987) who starts from a finite horizon problem. t. Yt + mt = Y¯ + mt−1 mt ≥ 0, and m0 is given. 1) The value function V1 (m0 ) is the maximum utility the consumer can achieve at t = 1 if he starts with m0 units of real balances.

22) except for the added index i. Since the endowment is a portfolio of n trees per agent the market clearing condition is: n Cˆ τ = dτi for all τ. 25) to get the equilibrium condition: ∞ pti = n βτ−t U n dτi τ=t+1 dti U i=1 dτi . 27) each individual wants to hold his initial portfolio of n trees and consume their fruits. Note that the dividend at time τ is multiplied by n Sτ = U n dτi i=1 dti . 28) i=1 In bad times, when ni=1 dτi is relatively small, the marginal utility of consumption is high and therefore Sτ is high.
