The Growth-Inflation Nexus for the US over 1801-2013: A Semiparametric Approach
Rangan Gupta and
No 15-17, Working Papers from Eastern Mediterranean University, Department of Economics
We try and detect whether there exists a threshold level of inflation for the US economy over 1801-2013, beyond which it has a negative effect on economic growth. We use a combination of nonparametric (NP) and instrumental variable semiparametric (SNP-IV) methods to obtain inflation thresholds for the United States. The results suggest that the relationship between growth and inflation is hump shaped—that higher levels of inflation reduce growth more. Our results consistently show that inflation above two per cent negatively affects growth.
