In this study, the relation between inflation and inflation uncertainty was examined for the period of 1987:1-2005:6 monthly for the Turkish economy. EGARCH was utilized to get inflation uncertainty. Although there is a bi-directional causality relation between the variables according to Hsiao and Granger approaches, the sign of causality running from inflation uncertainty to inflation as to Granger causality test is not significant. VAR analysis shows that there exist a uni-directional causality relation running from inflation to inflation uncertainty. Shortly, inflation has a strong effect on inflation uncertainty. Achieved empirical results from Granger causality test and VAR analyses support the Friedman-Ball hypothesis in that period.
