Abstract

This paper investigates empirically the relationship between the demand for real money balances and its determinants in Greece. The relationship under scrutiny is analyzed in the context of a small system involving money, prices, income, and interest rates using a recently proposed modeling strategy based on sequential reduction of a congruent vector autoregression. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of obtaining adequate representations of the nonstationary features of the data, as well as on the necessity of evaluating a model's adequacy through tests for congruence and encompassing.
