Bubbles and Leverage: A Simple and Unified Approach

Posted: 9 Jul 2021

Date Written: November, 2013


In this paper, we lay out a simple framework that captures much of what the theoretical literature has to say about the role of credit in systemically important asset booms and busts. In addition, we suggest ways in which to incorporate physical investment in the bubble asset as well as monetary policy.
