Monetary Targeting in Pakistan: A Skeptical Note

Muhammad Omer () and Omar Saqib ()

No 25, SBP Working Paper Series from State Bank of Pakistan, Research Department

Abstract: The objective of this study is to evaluate monetary targeting strategy in Pakistan by testing the Quantity Theory of Money and the income velocity of money stated by Monetarists and the endogenous money hypothesis postulated by the Post Keynesians. Our tests on the Pakistani data covering about thirty years reveal that the quantity theory is an inadequate explanation of inflation, income velocity of money is unstable, and money is endogenous. These results suggest rethinking on monetary targeting strategy in Pakistan. Length: 23 pages
