Tests of Functional Forms, Currency Substitution, and Capital Mobility of Czech Money Demand Function

  • Yu Hsing
Registered author(s):

    The demand for real M2 in the Czech Republic is positively influenced by real output and negatively associated with the deposit rate, the koruna/euro exchange rate, and the euro interest rate. The coefficient of real output for the demand for real M1 is insignificant. Hence, depreciation of the koruna or a higher euro interest rate would help raise Czech real output. The Box-Cox transformation test shows that the log-linear form for real M1 and M2 demand cannot be rejected at the 5% level while the linear form for real M1 and M2 demand can be rejected at the 5% level. The CUSUM and CUSUMSQ tests show that parameters in the demand for both real M1 and M2 demand are stable. In comparison, real M2 is a better monetary aggregate.
