Abstract/Summary

In this paper, we study a model economy that examines the optimal intraday rate. In Freeman’s (1996) paper, he shows that the efficient allocation can be implemented by adopting a policy in which the intraday rate is zero. We modify the production set and show that such a model economy can account for the non-uniform distribution of settlements within a day. In addition, by modifying both the consumption set and the production set, we show that the central bank may be able to implement the planner’s allocation with a positive intraday interest rate.
