Financial Liberalization, Money Demand, and Inflation in Uganda
International Monetary Fund (IMF)
IMF Working Paper No. 01/118
This paper uses cointegration analysis to investigate the empirical relationship among money, prices, income, and a vector of interest rates in Uganda from 1982 to 1998. Despite the substantial financial market liberalization in the early 1990s, quarterly time-series data confirm that a stable relationship prevailed among real broad money, income, and domestic and foreign interest rates. The empirical results indicate income homogeneity, a strong own-rate-of-return effect, a high degree of international capital mobility, and asset substitutability, and they demonstrate that both domestic and foreign factors are important determinants of inflation in Uganda.
