Title: Is Money Essential? An Experimental Approach.

Abstract: Monetary exchange is called essential when better outcomes become incentive-compatible when money is introduced. We study essentiality theoretically and experimentally using finite-horizon monetary models that are naturally suited to the lab. Following mechanism design, we also study the effects of strategy recommendations, both when they are incentive-compatible and when they are not. Results show output and welfare are significantly enhanced by fiat currency if monetary equilibrium exists, but not otherwise. Also, recommendations help if incentive-compatible, but not otherwise. Sometimes, money gets used when it should not, and we investigate why using surveys and measures of social preferences.
