An Aggregate Demand - Aggregate Supply Analysis of Japanese Monetary Policy, 1973-1990

Listed author(s):
  • Kenneth D. West

An aggregate demand - aggregate supply framework is used to analyze the effects of Japanese monetary policy, 1973:1-1990:8. It is found that money supply shocks contribute relatively little to output variability over the sample as a whole. Nor do these shocks seem to be particularly marked during business cycle contractions. The effects of monetary policy on prices and output appear to be quite similar to those of a constant money growth rule.
