|Title:||MONETARY POLICY AND THE VELOCITY OF MONEY IN GREECE: A COlNTEGRATION APPROACH|
|Publisher:||Department of Economics|
|Abstract:||Long run real money demand and velocity function for the narrow monetary aggregate M1 are tested by means of the cointegration approach developed by Johansen and Juselius (1990). The results support the existence of a systematic relationship between M1-velocity, the rate of interest and the exchange rate. An interesting aspect of the trivariate error correction vector autoregressive analysis is the evidence of bidirectional causality between the exchange rate and velocity. Furthermore, changes in the rate of interest provide information that helps predict future movements of M1-velocity. Finally, the results derived from Engle and Granger (1987) two-step procedure suggest that M1-velocity is subject to control through policy-induced interest rate and exchange rate movements, thus justifying the adoption of M1 as a useful monetary target.|
