If a number of country characteristics are held constant, then regression results indicate that the impact effects from an increase in average inflation by 10 percentage points per year are a reduction of the growth rate of real per capita GDP by percentage.

Clear, balanced, and authoritative, Inflation Targeting is a groundbreaking study that will have a major impact on the debate over the right monetary strategy for the coming decades.

    The book analyses the failings of the British economy over the last two hundred years. It concludes that the main cause of its relatively poor performance has been inappropriate monetary and exchange rate policies. The damage these have done, especially to British manufacturing, has made the whole economy uncompetitive. Based on this analysis, the book then sets out an economic strategy.   Economist Mariana Mazzucato believes that imbalance is indicative of another crisis in the making, this one fueled in part through faulty methods used to measure economic performance.

    Macroeconomic performance and outlook Real GDP was estimated to grow at % in , higher than the regional average. Growth was mainly in services (%) and industry (%), particularly construction (30%). Investment drove growth, led by public investment in basic services and infrastructure. Real GDP per capita increased % in Inflation moved up slightly to % in . Summary. During the s, it appeared that there was a stable trade-off between the rate of unemployment and the rate of inflation. The short-run Phillips curve, which describes such a trade-off, suggests that lower rates of unemployment come with higher rates of inflation, and that lower rates of inflation come with higher rates of unemployment.
