Note that the theoretical underpinnings as well as the identifying assumption used to make causal interpretations of empirical correlations are dubious at best. It is a straightforward implication of the openeconomy version of Poole’s (1970) model of optimal monetary policy, that under unrestricted capital mobility, a fixed exchange rate provides the optimal adjustment to demand shocks coming from the money demand or money supply side of the economy (‘LM shocks’). Most of the empirical work does not distinguish between LM and IS (investment saving) shocks.

This would be an argument against monetary union. Even in the rarified world of these neoclassical public finance models, this argument is by no means robust, however. Money is an asset, as well as a medium of exchange (indeed, to be a medium of exchange it has to maintain some value over some period, however short, so it has to be a store of value), and there is a considerable literature suggesting that, at least in steady state, assets should not be taxed (see Chamley, 1986). Money can also be thought of as an intermediate input in the process transforming primary inputs into goods and services available for household consumption.
