Abstract: This paper employed the simultaneous equation model using the three-stage least squares technique to analyse the impact of money supply, government expenditure and exchange rate on industrial output; and the effect of industrial output on economic growth in Nigeria. The study used annual data covering 1981 to 2017. It was found that industrial output affects economic growth positively in Nigeria, just as exchange rate has a positive significant impact on industrial output. The study recommends that fiscal policies should be formulated with a clear-cut view to addressing the industrial needs of the country.
