An Application Of Ardl Bounds Testing Approach To The Estimation Of Level Relationship Between Inflation, Economic Activity And Oil Price In Algeria

Authors : Attouchi Manel .

Abstract

The present paper analyzes the relationship between CPI, GDP & oil prices by adopting ARDL bounds testing approach in Algeria over the period 1970 - 2018. The findings indicate there is a cointegration relationship between variables, which allows us to estimate the ECM, at the short run GDP affects consumer price inflation positively only after one lag period at 1% of significance. While, at the long run both oil prices and GDP have an impact on consumer price inflation and those effects are economically significant ( & insignificant , respectively) . Hence an increase in oil prices in Algeria would raise the volume of exports, which may increase the GDP and subsequently, CPI follows as well.
