Saumitra, Bhaduri (2012): Revisiting the growth-inflation nexus: a wavelet analysis.
Download (145kB) | Preview
Motivated by the concern that the recent surge in inflation could retard growth, the paper revisits the nexus between inflation and growth from the perspective of an emerging economy, India. Examining this relationship using a wavelet multi resolution analysis with varying time scale decomposition suggests a strong and persistent negative relationship between growth and inflation for a short time scale, while it is not significant for a longer time scale.
