Limited studies that have assessed the impact of economic uncertainty on the demand for money have concentrated on using a volatility measure of money supply and output. Certainly, other factors such as regulation, taxes, budget deficits, national debt, etc. can contribute to an uncertain environment. This new measure of uncertainty, which is called 'policy uncertainty', is now constructed for several countries and published. We investigate the impact of this new measure on the demand for money in the UK and find that it has a negative and significant short-run effect, but not any log-run effects.
