Article title

The Nexus between Inflation Rate and Economic Growth of Polish Provinces after EU Accession


Title variants

Związki pomiędzy stopą inflacji a wzrostem gospodarczym w polskich województwach w okresie poakcesyjnym

Languages of publication



This paper is one of the first contributions which examine the nexus between inflation rate and economic growth of Poland after EU accession based on the regional data. The results prove that in the period 2004-2010 the causal link between inflation rate and economic growth among Polish regions was of a nonlinear nature. The empirical analysis confirmed the existence of two statistically significant inflation threshold levels related to contemporaneous as well as one-year-lagged causal effects.
Artykuł jest jednym z pierwszych opracowań analizujących na poziomie regionalnym związki pomiędzy stopą inflacji a wzrostem gospodarczym w Polsce po wejściu do UE. Wyniki potwierdziły, że w okresie 2004-2010 występował nieliniowy związek przyczynowy pomiędzy stopą inflacji a tempem wzrostu gospodarczego w polskich województwach. Badania potwierdziły występowanie dwóch statystycznie istotnych progowych poziomów inflacji związanych z równoczesnymi i opóźnionymi efektami czasowymi.
