Does the Fisher effect exist for New Zealand? A VAR approach

Con Korkofingas, Joseph Macri

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper examines the Fisher Hypothesis for New Zealand using a VAR approach. Empirical results seem to suggest that the 'strong form' of the Fisher hypothesis, which states that the nominal rate of interest fully adjusts to anticipated inflation, cannot be rejected for New Zealand for the period 1991Q1 to 2006Q4.
