Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


In this paper we analyze the short-and long-run Fisher relationships for US, UK, Canada and Japan. using monthly data on Eurocurrency interest rates and inflation rates. We show that the long-run Fisher relationship holds for all four countries. We also show that the short-run Fisher relationship holds for UK and Japan, but not for Canada. As for the US, the short-run Fisher relationship is significant only atthe 10 percent level.
