Therefore, consider the relationship between real deficits and the rate of growth of real GDP. With the exception of Singapore and Thailand, there is no systematic direction in the movement of the two variables. Thus declines in real deficits are accompanied by increases in the real GDP growth as well as decreases. In Singapore, there is a positive relationship, as is the case for Thailand, except for the period 1981–85 when the relationship is negative. 9. Turning to the behaviour of nominal deficits and the growth of reserve money supply, there are mixed results.

Money supply is represented by M1. 9 provides the mean values and variances of the variables for the period under consideration. 10 provides mean values for different time periods. 9. Looking at the mean values of the real deficits as percentage of GDP and the rate of growth of real GDP, we find that countries with high rates of growth are associated both with low real deficits as well as with high. The only unambiguous case is that of India where low real deficits are also accompanied by low growth rate.

It is interesting to note that the countries which experienced the highest mean nominal deficits, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, did not experience the highest rates of growth of reserve money. That distinction belonged to Indonesia and South Korea where the mean deficit ratio was one of the lowest in the sample. This would seem to suggest a lack of definite relationship between nominal deficits and the growth of reserve money supply. As is to be expected, there seems to be a close correspondence between the rates of growth of reserve money supply and M1.
