Abstract

The most important basic objectives for any countries in this world are to sustain high
economic growth with low inflation. Thus, this study attempts to investigate the
relationship between economic growth rate and inflation rate in Malaysia based on
Previous Policy of Malaysia. Using the annual data for the period 1970-2008,
economic root test unit, integration test and Granger Causality test are used.
According to this study, the empirical results showed that the data is stationary at
level. The finding also shown the results integrate in long run relationship between
inflation rate and economic growth rate. The Granger Causality test did not show
bidirectional between economic growth rate and inflation rate. But, a uni-directional
causality is found from inflation rate to economic growth rate. Hence, there is exist
short run causality between variables in uni-directionally.
