Are Long-Term Inflation Expectations Well-Anchored? Evidence From The Euro Area And The United States
type="main"> This paper analyses the stability of long-term inflation expectations and uncertainty, based on their sensitivity to innovations to observed inflation, short- and medium-term forecast news. News is defined in a subjective sense and derived from revisions to shorter-term fixed-target forecasts. The assessment tests for presence of non-linear effects, including regime changes during disinflation in the USA in the 1990s and the recent financial crisis. Stability is also investigated in terms of level evolution, based on a structural non-linear and non-Gaussian learning model to uncover the presence of a common trend underlying the long-term dynamics of inflation, individual expectations, and uncertainty.
