We study economies where firms acquire capital in primary markets, then, after idiosyncratic productivity shocks, retrade it in secondary markets that incorporate bilateral trade with search, bargaining, and liquidity frictions. We distinguish between full or partial sales (one firm gets all or some of the other’s capital), and document several long- and short-run empirical patterns between these variables and the cost of liquidity measured by inflation. Quantitatively, the model can match these patterns plus standard facts from the business cycle literature. We also investigate the impact of search frictions, monetary and fiscal policy, persistence in shocks, and returns to scale.
