Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Our equilibrium model determines the liquidity premium offered by a monopolistic bank to a pool of depositors made up of time-consistent and time-inconsistent agents. Time-consistent depositors demand compensation for illiquidity, whereas time-inconsistent ones are willing to forgo interest on illiquid savings accounts to discipline their future selves. The model delivers both pooling and separating equilibria. In the pooling equilibrium, which is more likely when the market is dominated by time-consistent agents, time-inconsistent depositors obtain a higher-than-demanded liquidity premium. This key result is consistent with stylized facts from Bangladesh. We discuss the consequences of our findings from a regulatory perspective.
