The fiat-money-with-strategic-dummy-bank models of chapter 7 are altered to allow the traders to strategically default. Mathematically this means removing the budget constraint from the traders’ optimizations but including a “default penalty” in their objective functions. Our results are identical with the models from chapter 7, except there is now a subcase of the “original endowment of money very small” case in which it is optimal for the traders to default on their loans.

Keywords:   bankruptcy, default, default penalty, interest rate vs money supply, secured loan
