Employment Growth, Inflation And Output Growth: Was Phillips Right? Evidence From A Dynamic Panel

In this paper, the authors analyse the short- and long-run relationship between employment growth, inflation and output growth in Phillips' tradition. For this purpose they apply FMOLS, DOLS, PMGE, MGE, DFE, and VECM methods to a nonstationary heterogeneous dynamic panel including annual data for 119 countries over the period 1970-2010, and also carry out multivariate Granger causality tests. The empirical results strongly support the existence of a single cointegrating relationship between employment growth, inflation and output growth with bidirectional causality between employment growth and inflation as well as output growth, giving support to Phillips' Golden Triangle theory.
