This research applies Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) and monthly data for the periods January 2006 – December 2016 for individual country estimation. The results show that the ASEAN5 monetary authorities have responded the increase of EMP by contracting domestic credit in the non-crisis periods, and by providing more liquidity to the bank system in the crisis periods.
