Recent new financial innovations are hedge funds and all kinds of options and derivative instruments. Collateralised debt obligations (CDOs) and collateralised loan obligations (CLOs) are financial instruments where the loans of households and companies are turned into tradable securities (the so-called process of securitisation). These are relatively new financial instruments that have helped to diversify risk for the issuer of household mortgages or commercial credits. The number of such innovative financial products has grown rapidly, in fact credit derivatives in the form of credit default swaps, mortgage-backed securities or loan-backed securities have expanded exponentially, but so too have financial markets for them, which have also grown enormously.

Models of this type can be found in Beaudry and Portier (2004), Christiano et al. (2006, 2008) and also Lansing (2008), all of which work with the above mentioned mechanism of expectation dynamics. Yet, in most literature based on the Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model, the expectation dynamics concern technology shocks, which are capable of explaining only a small part of the boom-bust cycle in asset markets. Another source of expectation dynamics would be related to the expected pay-offs which themselves could be ill-founded, at least in the long run.

The classic study of debt deflation remains Fisher (1933), although Minsky (1975, 1982) in his writings on the financial instability hypothesis continued to warn of the dangers of another great depression. There is therefore an urgent need for economists to model the process of debt deflation in its interaction with monetary and fiscal policies that may stop the process of rising debt, falling output and asset prices and a collapse into depression. In Chapter 4 we embed the process of debt accumulation and debt deflation via a sequence of partial models of debt accumulation and price deflation into fully integrated macroeconomic models of closed and open economies that are consistent with respect to budget constraints.
