In this paper, the relationship between the inflation gap and output gap is investigated by adopting the Markov switching model and using monthly data between 1990:1 and 2008:5. To the findings, the relationship between inflation gap and output gap is nonlinear. The major contribution of this study is that regime probabilities are computed in the context of Markov switching model by following Chen (2006).
