Asset prices and liquidity in an exchange economy

Ricardo Lagos

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    An asset-pricing model is developed, in which financial assets are valued for their liquidity-the extent to which they are useful in facilitating exchange-as well as for being claims to streams of consumption goods. The theory is used to study the implications of this liquidity channel for average asset returns, the equity-premium puzzle and the risk-free rate puzzle.
