Inflationary Wage Increase under Currency Substitution is a thesis paper written in English in 2006 by a Cambodian student at Japan’s Nagoya University for his undergraduate thesis paper.
HENG Dyna asked to have it uploaded to our website in a hope that it will be of service to other Cambodian economics students and that he can get useful comments for further research.
The abstract of the paper reads as follows:
This paper studies the effects of an inflationary wage increase for government staffs on the welfare of their own and private employees, and social welfare, with cash-in-advance constraints under currency substitution in an overlapping generation model. We show that there exists a Laffer curve relationship of seigniorage to finance such an inflationary wage increase in the long run. The inflationary wage increase has a negative effect on the welfare level of private employees, but has an ambiguous effect on that of government staffs and social welfare.
