The stock return-inflation puzzle revisited

By Liam A. Gallagher and Mark P. Taylor


We develop a theoretical model to formalize and derive testable implications of Fama's [American Economic Review 71 (1981) 545] 'proxy hypothesis' explanation of the stock return-inflation puzzle. Using a multivariate innovation decomposition, the evidence provides strong confirmation of the proxy hypothesis explanation of the puzzle in the US over the last 40 years.
