He can use these resources for consumption (C1 ) and for acquiring trees (A1 ) that will give him fruits in period 2. His period 1 budget constraint is: p1 A1 + C1 = p1 + d1 . In general the asset evolution equation t is: pt At = pt At−1 + dt At−1 − Ct . The consumer’s utility function is ∞ t=1 β U(Ct ), where 0 < β < 1 and the single period utility function is strictly monotone and concave: U > 0 and U ≤ 0. The representative agent takes the stream of dividends per tree {dt }∞ t=1 and the path of ∞ .

18) and is equal to 1 + ρ along the 45◦ line, when Ct = Ct+1 . 4 to determine whether the consumer will want to stay on the 45◦ line. 4 Varying m : m < m < m real balances. If he starts with m ¯ units he will move to a point like B and decumulate real balances. If he starts with m units he will not change the amount of real balances. Thus only m characterizes an optimal smooth consumption path. Formally if m characterizes an optimal smooth consumption path then it must satisfy the first order condition, 1 + ρ = 1 + f (m), or: ρ = f (m).

This is surprising because the standard reasons for the failure of the first welfare theorem are absent: There are no external effects, no distortive taxes and no monopoly power. Nevertheless, the reason for the inefficiency is the standard reason: A divergence between the individual and the social cost. What can we do to improve matters? It may be possible to require by law that on average agents hold m ¯ units of real balances. If this law is enforced, the price level will decline to P¯ ¯ where M/P = m.
