Inflation targeting and monetary analysis in Chile and Mexico
No 2002-7, Economics Discussion Papers from School of Economics, Kingston University London
This paper studies the role of monetary and open economy indicators in inflation targeting (IT) economies through the analysis of a nested Phillips curve/ P-star model for Chile and Mexico. For Chile a real money gap and a money growth indicator are found to be relevant in predicting deviations of observed from target inflation. In contrast, for Mexico a real exchange rate gap, a standard measure of the real exchange rate, and a money growth indicator are consistently significant as predictors of deviations of actual from (i) expected (in the pre-IT period) and (ii) target inflation (in the post-IT span).
