Precursors of the P-star model

Thomas M. Humphrey

Economic Review, 1989, vol. 75, issue Jul, 3-9

Abstract: The Federal Reserve Boards P-Star inflation forecasting model predicts changes in inflation from the gap between actual and equilibrium prices. The model has a distinguished history. Quantity theorists from David Hume to Milton Friedman have long used versions of it to explain how money stock changes determine price level changes with a lag.
