''Habit Persistence and Money in the Utility Function''
( 2004, Vol. 5 No.10 )
 
 
The paper introduces habit persistence in consumption decisions in an infinitely-lived agents monetary model where money enters in the utility of the agent. In this case, we show that the equilibrium is saddle path whereas Auray, Collard and Fève [2004] showed that the interplay between habit persistence and cash-in-advance generates real indeterminacy. These two distinct but commonly used framework do not lead to the same dynamic properties, therefore.
