Abstract:Currency depreciatiton is normally expected to promote domestic output growth in an economy. This paper analyses the relationship between annual growth rates of GDP, non-oil GDP and oil GDP, respectively, and annual percentage exchange-rate variations (particularly, naira depreciation) in Nigeria for the 1971-1995 period. The results are generally against the theoretical expectations in each case. Bibliogr. notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
