Money demand in a dollarizing economy:the case of the dominican republic
Journal of Developing Areas, 2008, vol. 42, issue 1, 39-52
This paper investigates money demand in the Dominican Republic. The study employs monthly economic time series covering a period of stabilization and rapid economic growth alongside financial dollarization. The analysis reveals meaningful long-run relations for narrow and for broad monetary aggregates. Importantly, the study argues that the broad money demand function's peso-dollar interest rate differential coefficient could be capturing financial dollarization. However, short-run modeling unveils coefficient instability, and that could jeopardize money demand's traditional role in designing and executing monetary policy.
