Abstract

This paper revisits the effect of globalization on the output-inflation trade-off, using a new data set of 1114 sacrifice and benefice ratios for a large cross-section of 118 countries over the time period 1966−2007, which is calculated following the approach of Jordan (1997). In line with previous studies our estimates suggest that larger (dis)inflations, effected over a short period, starting from high levels of inflation are associated with smaller sacrifice and benefice ratios. Globalization in terms of financial and trade openness has increased sacrifice and benefice ratios, with financial openness superseding the role of trade openness in importance since the 1990s.
