Research has focussed mainly on the theory and estimation of the demand for money and foreign trade relationships. In the money demand area, studied issues of parameter stability and proposed alternative methods for specifying and testing regression equations involving variable parameters. These approaches were utilised extensively in the modelling of the inflationary process, including hyperinflations.

Work on estimating import and export functions for both developed and developing countries showed that price responsiveness was much larger than had earlier been thought. Recent research has been directed towards formulating small-scale open-economy models which integrate the real and monetary sectors through emphasising the role of monetary disequilibrium in the behaviour of key macroeconomic variables.
