Brussels Economic Review Abstract:
This paper tries to elucidate the relationship between innovations, interest rate and price movement in Imperial Germany (1878-1913). We use the high-powered patents as a proxy for changes in technology. Using various distributed lag models we found a small, positive and significant response of CPI inflation to the technological shock. No significant influence of interest rates on inflation was found.
