International Monetary Equilibrium with Default
We present an integrated framework for the study of the inter- national nancial economy with trade, at money, monetary and s- cal policy, endogenous default and regulation. Money is introduced via a cash-in-advance requirement and real trade is endogenous. The standard international nance pricing results obtain. Market incom- pleteness and positive default in equilibrium allow for the study of the transmission of default through the international nancial markets and imply a positive role for policy. Finally, we present an example where, due to the trade-o? between the non-pecuniary cost of default and the resulting allocation, a Pareto improvement occurs following an increase in interest rates.
