Taxes finance transfers that offset the flow of interest income. This does not mean, however, that households will decline to hold the foreign bond. It is the only available foreign-currency asset (and, therefore, the vehicle for speculation when, in Chapter 9, expectations are not stationary). Furthermore, households may not expect to be taxed in proportion to the increase in Tf that can be ascribed directly to their own investments in the foreign bond. To hold that expectation, they would have to behave in a Kantian fashion-to refrain from buying a foreign bond because it would be pointless to do so if every other household bought one too.

At the highest level of aggregation, wealth would have to include total nonlabor income, K less wE, divided by a discount rate. 12 Furthermore, changes 11 See Appendix B, where we rework a sample of results for the case in which bonds are consols (perpetual annuities). 12 The market value of the claims would be K = {Y - wE)/rk, where rk is the discount rate; the demand for them would be *K = K(r0 , rx, rk, Wh), where r0 and rx are the interest rates on the two bonds; and the new market-clearing equation would be *K - K = 0.

Having listed ways in which our model is general, we must also emphasize ways in which it is quite special. 10 Later in this book, moreover, the number of countries is doubled, and we have to solve larger numbers of equations. To do so simultaneously is very difficult, and it is not easy to interpret the solutions. Therefore, we have sought to simplify the structure and behavior of the single, small economy to make the mathematics somewhat more manageable. We have tried to do so, however, in ways that also highlight some of the phenomena that distinguish our approach, especially the roles of asset markets in determining exchange rates.
