Monetary aggregation and the neutrality of money



This article tests the long-run neutrality of money proposition using quarterly U.S. data over the period from 1960:1 to 1996:2 and the methodology suggested by King and Watson (1997), paying particular attention to the integration and cointegration properties of the variables. Comparisons are made among simple sum, Divisia, and currency equivalent (CE) monetary aggregates using the Anderson et al. (1997a, 1997b) series of Divisia and CE monetary aggregates.
