La ley de Wagner o ley del crecimiento secular del gasto público constituye un importante tópico en la investigación sobre las causas del crecimiento secular del gasto público. En este trabajo se analiza de forma exhaustiva dicha ley a través de los escritos del propio Wagner y sus exegetas tales como Tim y Bird. Asimismo, se realiza su contrastación empírica en sus seis variantes comunes para el caso español.

    ABSTRACT: This paper develops and estimates a small new-classical model of the Greek economy using annual data from 1954 to 1980. The model is "monetarist" as the demand for output is derived from the demand for money function. In this model output is affected only by actual and anticipated monetary growth, whereas the price level is influenced by both actual and unanticipated changes in money supply, using single equation and simultaneous equation techniques.

    ABSTRACT: A central proposition in the Phillips curve view of the inflation process is that prices are marked up over productivity-adjusted labor costs. If that is true, then long-run movements in prices and labor costs must be correlated. If long-run movements in a time series are modeled as a stochastic trend, then the above noted implication of the 'price markup' view is related to the concept of cointegration discussed in Granger (1986), which says that cointegrated multiple time series share common stochastic trends. The evidence reported here shows that time series measuring rates of change in prices and labor costs are cointegrated. Furthermore, this cointegration appears consistent with Granger-causality running from the rate of change in prices to the rate of change in labor costs, but not vice versa as suggested by the 'price markup' view.

    ABSTRACT: This study has two purposes. One is to examine the substantive question: Is there statistical evidence that money is "exogenous" in some sense in the money- income relationship? The other is to dis- play in a simple example some time-series methodology not now in wide use. The main methodological novelty is the use of a direct test for the existence of unidirec- tional causality. This test is of wide im- portance, since most efficient estimation techniques for distributed lags are invalid unless causality is unidirectional in the sense of this paper. Also, the paper illus- trates the estimation of long lag distribu- tions without the imposition of the usual restrictions requiring the shape of the dis- tribution to be rational or polynomial. The main empirical finding is that the hypothesis that causality is unidirectional from money to income agrees with the postwar U.S. data, whereas the hypoth- esis that causality is unidirectional from income to money is rejected. It follows that the practice of making causal inter- pretations of distributed lag regressions of income on money is not invalidated (on the basis of this evidence) by the existence of "feedback" from income to money.
