      Aastveit, Knut Are; Bjørnland, Hilde Christiane; Cross, Jamie L. (CAMP Working Paper Series;03/2020, Working paper, 2020-06-25)
      Do inflation expectations and the associated pass-though of oil price shocks depend on demand and supply conditions underlying the global market for crude oil? We answer this question with a novel structural vector ...
