Testing long-run monetary neutrality propositions: lessons from the recent research

Author

Abstract

In this paper, James Bullard reviews the recent evidence on the long-run neutrality and superneutrality of money. Bullard restricts his attention primarily to several papers assessing the time-series evidence using techniques due to Fisher and Seater (1993) and King and Watson (1997).
