The Substitutability of Financial Assets in the U.K. and the Implications for Monetary Aggregation
This paper assesses empirically the degree of substitutability between capital certain liquid financial assets in the United Kingdom by employing consumer demand theory. Translog share equations are specified and estimated for the various monetary assets. Expenditure elasticities, own and cross-price elasticities, and elasticities of substitution are then derived from the parameter estimates and these measures are used to provide information as to the appropriate asset components to be included in monetary aggregates. Finally, Divisia aggregation is employed to construct a monetary aggregate that is consistent with economic aggregation theory and the performance of this Divisia aggregate is then compared to simple sum monetary aggregates.
