Abstract

Inventories form a small but important part of national wealth and constitute the most volatile component of GDP. Their moves are important indicators of the dynamics of the economy, both at the micro and macro level. In this paper, the authors venture to explain long-term macroeconomic inventory investment trends from new perspectives.
