Part of the series 'Sojourns in non-linear economics'
This presentation unravels the G5 carry trade. A typical strategy is simulated to show the historical returns. Three phases stand out: the Greenspan 'put', the Yen carry trade and the Lehman collapse. Preliminary results show central banks are price givers during crises, with no evidence for risk premia as predicted under CAPM. A method to estimate the impact of currency movements on the financial account is discussed. The overall impression is that capital markets do not clear in the medium-long term, and that central banks clear up the mess.
This presentation uses T-accounts to illustrate the dependencies between capital accumulation, aggregate demand and aggregate supply. Government provides stability by supporting demand through income redistribution. Adding shadow banking reduces yields, a reduction that is observed empirically. With differences in financial regulation, carry trades emerge. Despite the accounting constraints, the model has dynamic properties and outcomes are uncertain.

Stock Flow Consistent Models: An Introduction To Theory And Technique
Taught by Neil Lancastle (University of Leicester), Antoine Godin (University of Pavia), Eugenio Caverzasi (University of Pavia)
Stock flow consistent (SFC) models unify stocks and flows in a framework such that ’everything comes from somewhere and everything goes somewhere’ (Godley and Lavoie, 2007:6). The approach is grounded in Barrere, Graziani, Parguez and Poulon, and rediscovers Marx's 'monetary economy of production'. It has strong ties to the Cambridge (UK) School of Keynesian Economics and to the current post-Keynesian economists (Lavoie, Zezza, Keen, Pilkington and others).
