More realistically, it is surely the case that monetary disequilibria can be caused by non-monetary factors. Third, is the focus on the long run not misplaced? The focus of policy is almost always on the short run. The monetary approach tends, therefore, to skate over the interesting and relevant question of the short-run adjustment path towards equilibrium. Fourth, is it not unrealistic to assume that policy-makers will be indifferent about the composition of the balance of payments? All the evidence is that considerable stress is placed on the importance of the current account as a means of servicing and eventually repaying loans.

Combining equations (4) and (6) gives us: 6BP= L-Y- (eL-Y+ 6Z) (7) L-BP= 6Y-c6Y- 6Z (8) and: According to this expression the balance of payments will change if there are changes in domestic output and income (though the effects of such changes will be partially offset by induced changes in domestic expenditure), changes in the marginal propensity to spend from domestic income, or changes in autonomous expenditure. Changes in expenditure could in turn, and for example, result from changes in investment associated with changing expectations about the future, or from changes in government expenditure associated with changing political objectives.

Furthermore, there is an additional risk associated with swapping between currencies when exchange rates are flexible and unpredictable. Although, to an extent, such risk may be eliminated by forward transactions to buy and sell currencies, the reduction in risk can only be bought at a price and this will reduce the expected return. On top of this, wealthholders may simply not regard assets in different countries as close substitutes for one another and may therefore not respond greatly to changes in the interest rates on offer in different countries.
