|Preliminary scope of work in English|
|The thesis contributes to empirical studies of inflation determinants. The ultimate aim of this thesis is to show that the money supply has according to BMA analysis greater explaining power of inflation than currently used output gap.
Our main hypothesis is that monetary aggregates provide additional information useful in forecasting inflation.
The rigorous thesis extents the diploma thesis with the discussion about the endogeneity of the presented inflation model. Further on, we will discuss the usage of HP filter and compare it with other methods of filtering the data and how it will influence the model outcomes.
