Abstract: UK aggregate demand is modelled over the period 1965q1-1998q2 within a long-run structural VAR of the following variables: domestic and foreign output, domestic and foreign short-term interest rate, domestic long-term interest rate, the real effective exchange rate and real money balances. The long-run structure imposed on the cointegrating matrix is derived from a simple IS-LM-BP view of aggregate demand. The validity of this structure is tested taking into account the possible presence of structural breaks associated with changes in the exchange rate regime. This involves two innovations: First, small-sample distributions of the relevant test statistics have been simulated using bootstrap techniques; second, convergence problems typically encountered when bootstrapping the tests of over-identification of the cointegrating matrix have been overcome. Having accounted for sample size, there appears to be no evidence with which to reject the structure imposed by the IS-LM-BP theory and the presence of structural change.
