Abstract: Abstract In an attempt to understand the relationship between stock returns and inflation, this study proposes testing the Fisher effect in two groups of countries, the G7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States) group of low inflation industrialized countries and the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) group of relatively high inflation emerging countries, to examine the extent to which a one-to-one movement of stock returns and inflation relates to the country’s inflation rate and consumer price index. By using cointegration and vector error correction models, the results show that there is evidence of a long-run positive relationship in both G7 and BRICS countries.
