Abstract

Fisher hypothesis provides theoretical framework for the study of relationship between nominal interest rate and inflation. It assumes one to one direct relationship between nominal interest rate and inflation. Modifications to this model are explained by Mundell effect, Phillips curve and Friedman effect , Levi and Makin effect, Darby effect and Carmichael and Stebbing effect (Inverted Fisher Hypothesis). The objective of this paper is to explore the Fisher hypothesis and its alternative specifications using IFS Panel data set and applying General to Specific Methodology .Findings of this paper show that Inverted Fisher hypothesis holds in above average money supply ̷ GDP countries. Full Fisher effect is present only when Phillips curve effect and Friedman effect are also present in below average money supply ̷ GDP countries.
