This paper presents an overlapping generations model with private information, in which the use of fiat money and the rampant moral hazard incentives sustain each other. It is shown that: there is a monetary equilibrium, despite the fact that the rate of return on the non-monetary asset is significantly higher thatn the rate of economic growth in the non-monetary case; the valuation of money is not necessarily Pareto-improving, but rather can be harmful to almost all generations; an inflationary policy can improve the welfare of all generations except the initial one.
