Money growth volatility and the demand for money in Germany: Friedman’s volatility hypothesis revisited
AbstractRecently, the Bundesbank claimed that monetary targeting has become considerably more diffcult by the increased volatility of short-term money growth. The present paper investigates the impact of German money growth volatility on income velocity and money demand in view of Friedman's money growth volatility hypothesis. Granger-causality tests provide some evidence for a velocity-volatility linkage. However the estimation of volatility-augmented money demand functions reveals that - in contrast to Friedman's hypothesis - increased money growth volatility lowered the demand for money. --
