We develop a tractable dynamic general equilibrium model with idiosyncratic firm productivity shocks. Capital from less productive firms is lent to more productive ones in the form of credit secured by collateral and also as unsecured credit based on reputation. A dynamic complementarity between current and future credit constraints permits uncorrelated sunspot shocks to trigger persistent aggregate fluctuations in debt, factor productivity and output. In a calibrated version we compare the features of sunspot cycles with those generated by shocks to economic fundamentals.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/21438/2/azariadis_214387.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Kaas, Leo</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-02-05T09:22:16Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Azariadis, Costas</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Self-Fulfilling Credit Cycles</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2013-02-05T09:22:16Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/21438"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/21438/2/azariadis_214387.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Kaas, Leo</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Azariadis, Costas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
