No 200502, Working Papers from University of Pretoria, Department of Economics

Abstract: The paper is an attempt to estimate the short-run and long-run money demand functions in India for the decade of the ninety. The paper tries to closely follow the methodologies laid down in Chow (1966), Hendry (1980), Rose (1985) and Hwang (1985). The main findings of the paper are: (i) permanent income is not an appropriate epresentation of the scale variable, (ii) the positive interest elasticity of demand for money in the short-run (iii) limited ability of economic agents in removing disequilibrium of past period and (iv) rejection of the real adjustment hypothesis.
