Negative value of real moneys

Dear professor jpfeifer,

Hope you are keeping well. I run a DSGE model with real money reserve (m) and all run well. But I find the steady state value of m negative !! What is this means? I hope you can help me, always thank you, professor.

When we have deflation(general decline in prices of goods and services) real money balance is less than 0.

\frac{M}{P} <0

In steady state situations I think it is unnormal to have \overline{m}< 0 .

Altough we have inflation in economy and deflation is very rare in reality.

Because in steady state sitation P_{ss}=1 therefore \overline{m} = \frac{\overline{M}}{\overline{P}}=\overline{M}.

It is unnormal to have \overline{M}<0.

That indeed does not make sense. A money stock cannot be negative. Your equation for m contains the term /(1-(1/1+r)), which is negative. Are you sure it is correct?

you are right. it was wrong. thanks a lot
