Emi Nakamura is an American economist and the Chancellor's Professor of Economics at University of California, Berkeley.. Nakamura is a research associate and co-director of the Monetary Economics Program of the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a co-editor of the American Economic Review.. She was awarded the John Bates Clark Medal and elected as a member of the American . At the end of the sample period, dispersion has even increased. The existence of large persistence in European inflation rates is confirmed when distribution dynamics methodology is applied. At the end of the paper we present evidence for the sustainability of the ECB’s inflation target of an EMU-wide average inflation rate of less than.
In order to compare inflation dispersion in the Euro area with that in the United States, I use annual data on consumer price levels in nineteen U.S. cities from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Moreover, inflation dispersion in the Euro area has been higher than that observed in the United States. Assessing the sources of inflation divergence in the Euro area after suggests that countries with higher inflation rates tend to have also had higher GDP growth rates and a lower price level when the Euro was adopted.

This paper's analysis of growth and inflation dispersions in the euro area reveals several findings. First, these dispersions have declined appreciably since EMU; remaining dispersions are small but persistent, relating mainly to country-specific shocks, not differences in the transmission of common shocks.

What Explains Growth and Inflation Dispersions in EMU. This paper’s analysis of growth and inflation dispersions in the euro area reveals several findings. First, these dispersions have declined appreciably since EMU. Second, the remaining dispersions are small but persistent, relating mainly to country-specific shocks, not differences in the transmission of common shocks.
In these papers, leading international experts address the instability of the transition to EMU, the long-run implications of monetary union and the single market for growth and convergence in Europe. They also consider the prospects for inflation and fiscal convergence, regional policy Growth and inflation dispersions in EMU book the integration of financial markets and fiscal systems.

The chart shows that the degree of annual inflation dispersion across euro area countries (in terms of the HICP) has continually decreased since the start of EMU, coinciding with a decline in actual inflation.
This decrease in inflation dispersion was particularly marked in Stage I of EMU. Regional differentials in growth and inflation are a standard feature of all large currency areas around the world. In the euro area these differentials are of a similar size to those observed within the United States.
Let me provide some figures. The degree of inflation dispersion across the euro area countries was characterised by a strong. the empirical growth literature, we provide evidence in favor of significant mean reversion (β-convergence) in inflation rates in all considered samples.
The evidence on σ-convergence is mixed, however. Observed declines in dispersion are usually associated with decreasing. the factors behind growth and inflation dispersions is of particular importance from a policy standpoint, as it would allow us to distinguish between benign and malign economic developments in the European Monetary Union (EMU) member states.
The paper analyzes the factors behind EMU dispersions by using a variety of dis-tinct approaches. This paper presents new evidence on inflation differentials in the Euro Area from different perspectives, and extending the sample including the recent financial crisis.
First, we give an informal analysis of the evolution of inflation dispersion and inflation differentials since the start of EMU. Second, we perform formal statistical analyses of the stability properties of inflation.
exist between inflation and economic growth in the short run and direction of causality is from inflation to economic growth but in the long run economic growth causes inflation.
Now a days, politician of some SSA countries also argued that high inflation is the consequence of the country's economic growth. The top panel indicates that traded goods price dispersion in the EMU in the first few years after the launch of the euro was actually lower than in the US, though these are not statistically significantly different.
In contrast, in the traded goods price dispersion measures were for the EMU and for the USA. What Explains Growth and Inflation Dispersions in EMU. Emil Stavrev Small Businesses and the Shadow Economy pp. Bojan Nastav and Štefan Bojnec The Nobel Prize in Economics: Mechanism Design Theory pp.

While most of the literature investigating the lack of convergence looks at price levels, the incidence of the Balassa-Samuelson effect, cyclical factors and the interference of national labour market institutions, this paper adds a new dimension by focusing on the impact of the EMU framework.
Recent studies on inflation differentials in the EMU stress the fact that inflation dispersion is higher in the non-traded sector (see Altissimo et al., ). However, as shown in Fig. 1, the actual inflation dispersion of industrial (non-energetic) goods is somewhat lower but still substantial and as persistent as those observed with the.
growth. This since inflation has an adverse effect on the allocation of resources working through a change in relative prices. Time periods associated with low inflation levels, on the other hand, make prices and wages more flexible, promoting economic growth (Lucas, ).
