Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 113, issue 2, 168-171
We find strong evidence that US common stocks have been a hedge against inflation in the long run, from the early 1950s. Adopting a two-regime threshold vector error-correction model, we find that the stock price and the goods price are co-integrated with unit elasticity, with stock return and inflation showing asymmetric error correction.
