First, in most countries output growth uncertainty is a positive determinant of the output growth rate. Second, there is mixed evidence regarding the effect of inflation uncertainty on inflation and output growth. Hence,uncertainty about the inflation rate is not necessarily detrimental to economic growth. Finally, there is mixed evidence on the effect of output uncertainty on inflation.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin. School of Business.
