Limited participation models explain a short-run liquidity effect as arising from the redistribution of income from non-participants in the bond market to participants in the bond market. However, these models also imply that the liquidity effect is smaller the larger is long-run money growth. Using cross-country data, we show that in the short run, the correlation between money growth and the nominal interest rate, and the regression coefficient of the latter regressed on the former are larger (algebraically), the larger is long-run money growth. These results are consistent with this latter implication of the limited participation models.

Keywords: Fisher effect; liquidity effect
