Money, Nexus, Inflation Rate


This study aims to investigate the development function of money. At the beginning, function of money is a barter between two commodities, C and C'. Then this becomes C-M-C' when the money is once introduced. The M-C-M' occurs when a businessman utilizes the money (M) to produce commodity (C) and resells it to generate more money (M'). Finally, the trading process of M - M' shows the capital or financial market, like the money or security market. The development of the function of money is shown by the changes of the money supply that measured with the inflation rate. This study contributes to advise the central bank in Thailand and Indonesia in managing the role of the central bank's credibility in achieving the inflation target and the proposed rules on monetary policy.
