This paper contributes to the debate on the role of money in monetary policy by analyzing the information content of money in forecasting euro-area inflation. The authors compare the predictive performance within and among various classes of structural and empirical models in a consistent framework using Bayesian and other estimation techniques. They find that money contains relevant information for inflation in some model classes. Money-based New Keynesian DSGE models and VARs incorporating money perform better than their cashless counterparts. But there are also indications that the contribution of money has its limits.
