Abstract

In this paper, we applied alternative time series techniques and obtained similar summaries of demand for money relations for twelve developing countries. This indicates that adequate attention should be paid to the purpose of research and interpretation of results rather than to econometric techniques. We also find that income elasticities are close to unity for almost all of our sample countries and the interest rate elasticities are well determined and significant. Further, it is shown that demand for money in these countries is temporally stable and therefore the respective monetary authorities may target money supply as opposed to the rate of interest.
