Hence, impatient agents must provide real estate as collateral if they wish to borrow.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kiyotaki a macroeconomist and Moore a contract theorist originally described their model in a paper miore the Journal of Political Economy.
Extensions [ edit ] The original paper of Kiyotaki and Moore was theoretical in nature, and made little attempt to evaluate the quantitative relevance of their mechanism for actual economies. That is, borrowers must own a sufficient quantity of capital that can be confiscated in case they fail to repay. Views Read Edit View history. Therefore, loans will only be made if they are backed by some other form of capital which can kiyotkai confiscated in case of default.
InKiyotaki’s student Matteo Iacoviello embedded the Kiyotaki-Moore mechanism inside cyclws standard New Keynesian general equilibrium macroeconomic model. The model assumes that borrowers cannot be forced to repay their debts. The paper also analyzes cases where debt contracts are set only in nominal terms or where contracts can be set in real terms, and considers the differences between the cases.

This feeds back into the real estate market, driving the price of land down further thus, the borrowing decisions of the impatient agents are strategic complements. The Kiyotaki—Moore model shows instead how relatively small shocks might suffice to explain business cycle fluctuations, if credit markets are imperfect.
This collateral requirement amplifies business cycle fluctuations because in a recessionthe income from capital falls, causing the price of capital to fall, which makes capital less valuable as collateral, which limits firms’ investment by forcing them to reduce their borrowing, and thereby worsens the recession.
Two key assumptions limit the effectiveness of the credit market in the model. In other words, loans must be backed by collateral. Journal of Political Economy.
Second, farmers cannot be forced to work, and therefore they cannot sell off their future labor to guarantee their debts. In their model economy, Credot and Moore assume two types of decision makerswith different time preference rates: Retrieved from ” https: This positive feedback is what amplifies economic fluctuations in the model. The “impatient” agents are called creedit in the original paper, but should be interpreted as entrepreneurs or firms that wish to borrow in order to finance their investment projects.
