''The effect of exchange rate on the money demand: evidence from ECOWAS countries''
( 2023, Vol. 43 No.4 )
 
 
This paper investigates the effects of exchange rate on the demand for money in ECOWAS countries by applying panel (auto-regressive distributed lag) ARDL approach. The results reveal existence of currency substitution. We find that real effective exchange rate has positive long-run effects on the demand for money, suggesting that the expectation effect dominates the wealth effect; real effective exchange rate has negative effects in the short-run implying that the wealth effect dominates the expectation effect. When we use nominal effective exchange rate as alternative of real exchange rate, our results remain similar.
