Abstract

Abstract-The purpose of this paper is to test the hypothesis first documented by 1, that inflation is lower in more open economies. According to this hypothesis, central banks have a smaller incentive to engineer surprise inflations in more-open economies because the Phillips curve is steeper. We utilized the ARDL Bounds test approach to level relationship proposed by 2 for Iranian annual data over the period 1973-2007. Results from Bounds test approach confirm existence of long-run relationship among the variables under consideration. The results show that openness has negative and significant effect on inflation in short-run but its effect in long-run is not significant.
