“... asked the question that has mainly preoccupied the literature ever since 1965. Different long-run rates of growth of the money supply will certainly be reflected eventually in different rates of inflation; but will there be any real effects in the long-run? Tobin studied this (“superneutrality”) question in a simple “descriptive” model with aggregate saving depending only on current income, and seigniorage distributed in such a way as to preclude any distributional effects. He found that faster money growth is associated with higher capital stock and output per person in the steady state.”
