The velocity of money: evidence for the U.K. 1911-1966
AbstractThis paper presents secular evidence on the income velocity of money balances. Under a variety of specifications and statistical techniques, employed on both traditional and non-traditional variables, the Friedman assertion that money is a superior good is found to lack empirical support. Indeed, income elasticities of demand for M2 balances of .3 to .45 are observed, elasticities much smaller than previously thought.
