Abstract

This work presents several estimations of Nicaraguan potential output. Results show that both, observed output and potential output are growing steadily. Potential output registered, on average, 3.41% in its growth rate for the period 2000-2013, meanwhile, observed output growths at 3.38% for the same time span. Specifically, the average potential growth was 4.59% in 2013 which fluctuates between a minimum value of 4.39% and a maximum of 4.80%. It was determined that the output gap is not statistically different from zero, which implies that domestic inflation is determined by factors other than the pressures generated via aggregate demand.
