A Comment on
AbstractResearch by Ghali (1999) tested for the existence of causality between wages and prices in United States' aggregate data using a multivariate cointegration framework. We show that Ghali's model is misspecified and that the correct specification leads to a different interpretation of the long-run dynamic relation between wages and prices.
