The link between inflation and growth has often been the center of debate and has attracted much attention. In this context, this work is an attempt to determine the possible relationship between inflation and growth through an econometric study using the method of panel data (the panel includes in one side the United States, in the other Europe represented by France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain), we tried to confirm the thesis that states: inflation is negatively related to growth, was also exposed in this work policies against inflation and deflation to achieve the idea that both are harmful to growth hence the idea of targeting. So of this work, we can conclude that there is a negative relationship between inflation and growth where we must set a limit inflation above (and below) which fight against inflation Night the economy.

Author Keywords: link, inflation and growth, United States and Europe, negatively, deflation, targeting.

Abstract: (french)

Le lien entre l'inflation et la croissance a été souvent le centre des débats et a suscité beaucoup d'attention. Dans ce contexte, Ce travail est un essai de détermination de la relation qui peut exister entre l'inflation et la croissance à travers une étude économétrique utilisant la méthode des données de panel (le panel regroupe d'un côté les Etats Unis, de l'autre l'Europe représentée par : la France, l'Allemagne, le Royaume-Uni, l'Italie et l'Espagne), on a essayé de confirmer la thèse qui stipule que : l'inflation est négativement liée à la croissance, on a exposé aussi dans ce travail les politiques de lutte contre l'inflation et la déflation pour aboutir à l'idée que toutes les deux sont néfastes à la croissance d'où l'idée du ciblage. Donc de ce travail, on peut conclure qu'il y a une relation négative entre l'inflation et la croissance d'où il faut fixer une limite d'inflation au-dessus (et en dessous) de laquelle lutter contre l'inflation nuit à l'économie.
