The full solution of the money market model is given in the Appendix. 3. 1, where the agents take into account the existence of a money market. We have to introduce the roles of borrowing and lending. We assume initial endowments of money as m1 and m2 where m1 ≥ m2 . Hence Type 1 traders become lenders √ and Type 2 traders borrowers. Again we assume that ϕ(x, y) = 2 xy. t. m1 − b − g ≥ 0 (cash-flow constraint) b, g ≥ 0, 0 ≤ q ≤ a. Again, decision variables b and q represent the amounts bid for Type 2 good and the amount offered of Type 1 good, respectively.

Again, decision variables b and q represent the amounts bid for Type 2 good and the amount offered of Type 1 good, respectively. Another decision variable, g, represents the amount lent to Type 2 traders. This money is lent at an interest rate of ρ, a rate that is determined endogenously to the model.

2. Here we discuss the three important cases: (1) enough money; (2) not enough money, not too unequally distributed; and (3) not enough money, highly unequally distributed. Thereafter, we present a sensitivity analysis of our results. enough money In the Appendix, we show that if M = m1 + m2 ≥ a, equilibria exist in which the consumption is efficient and the multipliers λ and λ¯ are both zero. 2). In addition, we show the interest rate ρ is zero, and the lending from Type 1 to Type 2 traders is anywhere in the interval [ 2a − m2 , m1 − 2a ].
