Inflation, Exchange Rates and PPP in a Multivariate Panel Cointegration Model

  • Economics
  • Logic


New multivariate panel cointegration methods are used to analyze nominal exchange rates and prices in the four major economic powers in Europe, France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain for the post- Bretton Woods period. We test for PPP and find that the theoretical PPP relationship does not hold but there is a similar (1,-1.5,0.9 instead of 1,-1,1) relationship which is common for the investigated countries. Parametric bootstrap inference is used to deal with badly small sample sized tests.
