''The demand for international reserves and monetary equilibrium: the case of nigeria.''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.3 )
The purpose of this paper is to empirically evaluate a dynamic error correction model that incorporates monetary disequilibrium in the demand for international reserves using Nigerian data for the period 1970 – 2007. The results show that reserves movement respond both to actual and desired reserves divergences and equally to monetary disequilibrium conditions; implying a high level of international reserves sterilization and equilibrium adjustment correction in the Nigerian financial system.
Keywords: International reserves, monetary equilibrium, sterilization, Nigeria
