Abstract

The objective of this paper is to gain an insight into the Greek hyperinflation that occured during the period 1941-1946. In doing so, a relatively novel data-set in conjuction with the bound testing approach to cointegration and error correction models developed within the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) framework, shed additional light on the underlying long-run relationship between money supply and inflation. Granger causality tests between money supply and prices are also conducted in the effort to ascertain the direction of causality between money supply and the (hyper) inflation rate.
