Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to estimate the money demand function of Cagan (1956) using a panel data set covering 27 countries with different economic levels over the period 1988-98. The static fixed effects and the dynamic fixed effects reveal that a money demand equation exists. However, in contrast to the theory proposed by Cagan, estimates of the output elasticity of money demand are in the range from 0.18 to 0.20.
