In this article the empirical relation between inflation and investment spending is examined using quarterly United States data. Findings indicate a positive cointegration relation between inflation and investment spending. The findings do not support the view that inflation hampers investment. The results suggest that, in the long-run, lowering of inflation may lead to a small reduction in real investment in the United States. These results raise doubts on arguments for low-inflation targeting policy view for the United States that are based on a negative relation between inflation and real investment.
