Abstract

In this paper, we study the relationship between the rate of increase of the money supply and the rate of growth of output in an economy. We show that in some models of endogenous growth, inflation has direct effects on the growth rate of the economy. Despite this, the estimated welfare cost of inflation from calibrated examples is similar to that found in exogenous growth models.
