Abstract

Quantification of the Non-Accelerating Inflation Rate of Unemployment (NAIRU) is often discussed topic, mainly in the sense of its implementation into the monetary authority decision making. I believe that the NAIR U identification for the Czech Republic has not been published yet. Identified model for the short-run NAIRU is based on the neoclassical macroeconomics. The model is treated within the state-space framework allowing both time-varying parameters and unobserved variables to be identified using the extended Kalman filter with backward smoothing (EKFS). The starting point for the NAIRU model is Estrella and Mishkin (1998), Gordon (/996) and Staiger, Stock and Watson(/996). The EKFS application proved its usefulness in modelling economies in transition. Even if the NAIRU does not represent an operative criterion for the monetary policy, it can be a useful information source for its formation. The Czech NAIRU model is estimated on quarterly data.
