Applied Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 19, issue 18, 1777-1780

Abstract: This article examines whether Inflation Targeting (IT) matters for long-run Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). For this purpose, we formally assess the evidence on PPP for a panel of 19 countries using two price indices and two panel unit root tests with cross-sectional dependence. The empirical results show that IT plays an important role in providing favourable evidence for long-run PPP.
