The Coulomb-drag effect, which has previously been considered theoretically and experimentally for a system of two electron gas layers, is studied for a system of two charged-Bose-gas (CBG) layers within an analytically solvable model. We consider a bilayer CBG in the presence of counterflow which, in superfluid mixtures and in spatially separated superconductors, leads to a drag effect. We investigate the effects of counterflow on the collective excitations, interaction energy, screened interactions, induced charge densities, and plasmon density of states in the bilayer CBG. These quantities, many of which have not been considered in connection with Coulomb drag in a bilayer electron gas, show how the many-body properties are affected, and thus provide additional insights into the drag effect.
