The Stability of EMU-Wide Money Demand Functions and the Monetary Policy Strategy of the European Central Bank
In this paper we investigate whether monetary aggregates could play a role as either intermediate targets or indicators of the single monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB). To this end, we estimate money demand functions for the European Economic and Monetary Union and test for their stability. Our estimations suggest that M3H in particular can play a role in both a monetary and an inflation targeting strategy. If the ECB chooses to opt for an inflation targeting strategy MR and even M1, in addition to M3H, may well serve as important indicators, alongside a number of other financial and real variables.
