The speed of adjustment is represented by the parameter A. For the euro area, Coenen and Vega (1999) have presented the following long-run money demand function for the money stock M3: This result is in line with many other empirical tests for Europe (Fase and Winder 1999) and for Germany (see the survey by Schachter 1999). 14). As already mentioned, this outcome can be explained by the influence of wealth on the demand for money. For instance, in Germany, monetary wealth of private households has been growing more strongly than nominal GDP.

However, if the difference between the short-term and the long-term nominal rate is included in a specification of the money demand, the impact of the inflation rate gets lost. As iB = TT + rB and iM = TT + rM, with rM and rB representing the real interest rates, the difference between both rates becomes7 Therefore it becomes necessary to include the inflation term explicitly. The elasticity of the inflation is negative, since a higher inflation rate implies higher opportunity costs of holding money compared with real assets.

A nominal money stock deflated with price index (m = MD/F); 2. depends on an interest variable (*), which includes the inflation rate because of the Fisher relationship; and 3. depends on real GDP (Y). In linear form, such a demand function can be written as where j80 is a constant, j8j and /32 are the income and the interest rate elasticity of the demand for money, and st is an error term. In most empirical studies, the interest rate term is used in a non-logarithmic form, which leads to In this formulation, /32 is the semi-interest elasticity of the money demand.
