From the individual point of view, a unit of leisure costs w(1 − τ) = f (1 − τ) units of corn. From the social point of view it costs f = w units of corn. OVERVIEW 21 We elaborate on the choice of taxes in chapter 6. For now the reason for the inefficiency is important because it will help us understand the inefficiency caused by inflation (or more accurately by a positive nominal interest rate).

What will happen to the price level and the rate of inflation at the jump to the new steady state? 7 Assume that the economy was in a steady state equilibrium and at time t all individuals experience a change in taste: ρ goes up. What will be the rate of inflation in the new steady state? What will happen to the rate of inflation in the transition to the new steady state? 8 Assume that liquidity services are described by the function f (m) = mα . What do we assume about α? What is the demand for money in a steady-state equilibrium as a function of π and ρ?

To appreciate the implication of this result consider a subsidy scheme, financed by a lump sum tax, in which the planner pays s units per unit of capital. The first order condition for the representative private agent is now: ρ = r(k) + s. By choosing s = ρ the central planner can induce agents to accumulate capital until they reach k¯ and at this point r(k) = 0. 21. 22 Optimal consumption when capital is above the optimal level The above subsidy scheme reduces the welfare of the representative consumer, in spite of the fact that eventually it leads to more consumption.
