When money and capital coexist in an economy in which the marginal product of capital fluctuates heterogeneously across individuals, money serves to exchange productivity. The result is greater efficiency in the sense of encouraging high-return) investment, higher growth rates and higher welfare in a monetary economy. The findings illustrate the benefits of a transition from a financially repressed to a financially developed state, and why extreme breakdowns of the monetary system might he expected to have significant real effects.
