Stability Problems in Hyperinflation Models - A Comment
The Zink-model endogenises the frequency of wage payments and analyses the implications for the dynamic behaviour of hyperinflation models. This comment shows how a slight modification of the Zink-model eliminates a shortcoming of traditional hyperinflation models: the high inflation equilibrium is stable, and, contrary to the literature, it has ‘correct’ comparative statics, i.e. a higher money financed budget deficit leads to a higher equilibrium inflation rate.
