Exchange rate volatility and demand for money in Iran

International Journal of Monetary Economics and Finance, 2012, vol. 5, issue 3, 268-276
In 1963, Nobel Laureate, Robert Mundell (1963) argued that the demand for money could depend on the exchange rate, in addition to income and interest rate. In this paper, we argue that, in addition to the exchange rate itself, its volatility could also serve as another determinant of the demand for money. We demonstrate our conjecture by using data from post-revolutionary Iran and the bounds testing approach. Our results reveal that indeed, exchange rate volatility has short-run as well as long-run effects on the demand for real M2 monetary aggregate in Iran.
