Publication Year : 1983

In the Winter 1979 issue of the Pakistan Development Review, Shahi and Sheikh presented some empirical results on inflationary expectations and monetary adjustment in Nigeria [9, pp.333 -339].

Secondly, we look at their model specification after which we abundantly show that their article is a duplication of another one published five years earlier. Finally, we offer our doubts about their results within the framework of their article.
