Description
  • Abstract

    Assuming inflation affects both the level and growth rate of output, the author states Howitt's Rule and explains how it argues for a continued policy of moderate inflation. Next, alternative estimates of the costs of achieving price stability are analyzed, and then those costs are compared with estimates of the gain from achieving price stability when inflation reduces the level or growth rate of output. Finally, the cross-section and time-series evidence on the effects of inflation on output growth is reviewed.
