Does Global Slack Matter More than Domestic Slack in Determining U.S. Inflation?

Fabio Milani ()

No 80910, Working Papers from University of California-Irvine, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper employs a structural model to estimate whether global output gap has become an important determinant of U.S. inflation dynamics. The results provide support for the relevance of global slack as a determinant of U.S. inflation after 1985. The role of domestic output gap, instead, seems to have diminished over time.
