In fact, Chari, et al., construct a number of theoretical examples in which this is so. In their examples, the Friedman rule remains optimal even though seignorage revenue must be replaced by distortionary taxes on labor income or consumption. That is, although the replacement taxes are distortionary. He suggested that the nominal interest rate be set to zero in his namesake rule and said that banks should increase the money supply every year in his k-percent rule. He argued that Keynesian economics result in stagflation on his program Free to Choose, and he wrote that inflexible monetary policy during the s caused the market crash in a.

Friedman rule is not optimal. In our monetary model, however, even though the govemment has distorting taxes, the Friedman rule turns out to be optimal. In our model, deviating from the Friedman rule amounts to taxing a subset of consumption goods, called cash goods, at a higher rate than other consumption goods. Optimality. optimality calls for a positive inﬂation tax and a non-zero capital income tax when there are restrictions on taxation of production fac-tors or proﬁts/rents. Our cases of nonoptimality of the Friedman rule —which diﬀer from those of Mulligan and Sala-i-Martin () and ex-tend substantially those of Schmitt-Grohè and Uribe (a Cited by: 3.

the optimality of the Friedman rule in our setup depends critically on money being a free good. Under certain conditions in a Ramsey setting Correia and Teles (, ) have shown that R¯ =0plays a role in evaluating the optimality of the Friedman rule. 4. the closed economy literature, when policy is set non-cooperatively in the open economy, the optimality of the Friedman rule is not a general result. Monetary authorities face an incentive to use the inﬂation tax to gain a ”beggar-thy-neighbor” advantage over the terms of by: 1.

There appears to be a widespread consensus in the literature that in economies with distorting taxes in which money is a final good, the Friedman rule is typically not optimal. Furthermore, if the demand for money is interest-inelastic, liquidity services should be taxed by: NBER Program(s):Economic Fluctuations and Growth Program We find conditions for the Friedman rule to be optimal in three standard models of money.

Once a sufficiently rich menu of taxes is available to the fiscal authorities, the Friedman rule, then, may or may not be optimal.

In contrast, in the case of MIP function, the optimal policy is to satiate the economy with real balances, even in the presence of distorting taxes on consumption and capital. That is, the Friedman rule is optimal. The optimality of the Friedman rule when some distorting taxes are exogenous.

I ﬁrst study the optimality of the Friedman rule in economies. economies in which governments must raise revenues with distorting taxes, it is optimal to tax all goods, including the liquidity services derived from hold- ing money.

Hence, Phelps argues that there is no theoretical presumption that the Friedman rule is optimal when there are distorting taxes.

Second, there is an ongoing controversy about whether the optimality of the Friedman rule is connected to the intermediate goods result from public finance.

We resolve this controversy by showing a deep connection between these by: called the “Friedman rule”. In this paper we lay out the connection of the “ﬁscal cost” arguments to the Friedman rule and also explain limitations to the results in some papers in the literature that have claimed that the Friedman rule is optimal even when only distorting taxes are available.

Essentially, Friedman advocated setting the nominal interest rate at zero. According to the logic of the Friedman rule, the opportunity cost of holding money faced by private agents should equal the social cost of creating additional fiat money. It is assumed that the marginal cost of creating.

Friedman () argued that positive nominal interest rates represent a distortive tax on real money balances.

To reach the ﬂrst-best these distortions should be removed, the nominal interest rate should be set to zero. This prescription, known as the Friedman rule, is a cornerstone in monetary economics.
