Abstract

With quarterly data from Israel and Turkey we estimate generalized impulse response functions to show that inflation has no long-run real effects on consumption, investment and the current account balance. The findings are robust even after allowing for inflation volatility obtained through GARCH estimates. We develop an inter-temporal optimizing model of a small open economy with a fixed rate of time preference that supports the empirics. Our model, thus, extends the super-neutrality results (à la Sidrausky) in an open economy paradigm. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
