Productivity growth and the Phillips curve in Canada

Joseph Gruber

No 787, International Finance Discussion Papers from Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (U.S.)

Abstract: This study examines the impact of productivity growth on the relationship between inflation and unemployment in Canada. Recently it has been suggested that higher productivity growth is responsible for a shift in the U.S. Phillips curve that occurred in the late 1990s. This paper examines whether the Phillips curve in Canada shifted in a manner similar to that of the United States, and the degree to which higher productivity growth explains this shift.
