International Evidence on the Demand for Money
AbstractOne of the current questions in the literature on the demand for money is whethe r the adjustment of actual to desired money holdings is in nominal or real terms. This paper describes a simple procedure that can be used to test the nominal against the real hypothesis. The test is carried out for twenty-seven countries. The paper also tests the structural stability of the demand for money equations and the correctness of th e dynamic specification. The results are strongly in favor of the nom inal-adjustment hypothesis. There is, however, some evidence of moder ate structural instability before and after 1973. The instability doe s not affect the conclusion that the nominal-adjustment hypothesis do minates the real adjustment hypothesis. Copyright 1987 by MIT Press.
