An Abstract of A Game-Theoretic Approach to a General Equilibrium Model with Asymmetric Price Information and No Goods by Elmer J. Fudd Submitted to the Graduate Faculty in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Economics The University of Toledo May 2010

Out-of-sample forecasting experiments are used as an alternative to looking at F-statistics when examining whether money, interest rates or the commercial paper/T-bill spread provide information content for subsequent movements in output, real and nominal personal income, the CPI and the PPI. Here a variable provides information if it improves the forecast of the explained variable. Employing this procedure I find that the paper-bill spread but not monetary aggregates provide information content for industrial production or real personal income when using data over the 1980-97 period. In contrast, I find that monetary aggregates provide information content for the CPI and nominal personal income but not the PPI.

Appendix A The Heading to Appendix A The Federal Reserve has at its disposal a limited set of instruments through which it can attempt to achieve its objectives of price stability and/or full employment output. Between the time a monetary instrument is adjusted and its ultimate effect on economic activity has occurred there are observable movements in other important economic variables such as monetary aggregates or interest rates. These variables may be used as intermediate targets if immediately subject to influence by policy and if their movements affect output or prices. If the variable does not cause output or prices, it may still be useful as an information variable if its movements consistently lead movements in the variables the Federal Reserve wishes to influence. Friedman and Kuttner (1992, 1993) sparked a healthy debate as to which variables are good candidates for intermediate targets or information variables. The candidates they considered to explain movements in industrial production included a price index, a monetary aggregate and the difference between the commercial paper rate and the treasury bill rate (the “paper-bill spread”). Using F-statistics to determine whether a particular variable provided information content, Friedman and Kuttner concluded that the paper-bill spread was a good candidate as it contained significant information content for industrial production regardless of sample: “[t]he spread is a predictor of real economic activity, not prices, and of nominal magnitudes only to the extent that they reflect real ones” (1993, p. 214). In contrast, they argued that money is related to neither real nor nominal income fluctuations and concluded that money is not a reasonable candidate as its information content broke-down in samples that included the 1980s. Monetary aggregates being “unreliable indicators of economic activity and as guides for stabilizing prices” has also been argued by Akhtar (1997, p. 4). The debate sparked
