Output Gap And Shocks Dynamics. The Case Of Romania
This paper evaluates the output gap and the effects of the inflationist shocks to the Romanian economy. We use an extension of the Blanchard-Quah decomposition with three variables: the real output, the unemployment rate and the inflation. Three types of shocks are evaluated: the productivity shocks (on the supply side), the adverse shocks in the labor market and the adverse shocks in the goods and services market (inflationist shocks). The seasonal pattern of the data regarding the quarterly GDP imposes a deseasonalised approach. The analysis of the dynamics of the shocks is confirmed by the real evolutions in the Romanian economy over the period 1994-2003; also a Phillips relationship between inflation and unemployment is emphasized. The conclusions confirmed the relevance of the labor market shocks and the productivity shocks upon unemployment. The equilibrium was reached in about 4 years – as in the case of the output. As regards the productivity shocks, it was found that they did not have relevance on the market of goods and services.
