Abstract

This study explores the causality between housing prices and money supply in order to support the dynamic equilibrium model in China. Considering structural changes, the long-run nexus using full-sample data is found to be unstable, suggesting the causality test is not reliable. Instead a time-varying rolling-window approach is employed to revisit the dynamic causal relationship. The results highlight the existence of a bidirectional causal link between housing prices and money supply in China. Specifically, soar and crash of housing prices manifest both positive and negative impacts on money supply in different sub-periods. In turn, money supply has a positive impact on housing prices, which supports the dynamic equilibrium model. In order to support a relatively stable housing price level, especially during structural economic changes, it is critical to facilitate the pegged money supply precautionary control and insure a reasonable and stable level of money supply into the real estate market.
