Evaluation Of Monetary, Fiscal And External Inflationary Sources In Nigeria

Samson Adeniyi Aladejare

Abstract


This study focuses on evaluating the monetary, fiscal and external inflationary sources in Nigeria. The ARDL estimation technique was adapted to capture these effects. Empirical findings of the study showed that overall, the main determining cause of inflation in both short run and long run periods in Nigeria, are more of monetary and external factors and less of fiscal sources. Specifically, the problem of inflation in Nigeria appears to be more of a structural phenomenon than monetary in the short run. However, in the long run, combinations of monetary and external factors tend to be the major cause of inflation. The study also found the long run effect of lending rate on inflation, to be indicative of the Neo-Fisherism effect.
