The Periods of Stagflation Pakistan has faced three periods of stagflation  First period of stagflation  Second period of stagflation  Third period of Stagflation

The first period of stagflation  Began in 1970s  After the disastrous succession of East-Pakistan  It was subsequently ended by the military government of Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s

Second period of stagflation  Began in 1990s  Benazir Bhutto and Navaz Sharif attempted to tackle the stagflation  Subsequently ended by Shaukat Aziz in 2000s. Third period of Stagflation  After the 2008 elections and the wide spread of militancy in the Western Pakistan, which would later follow the crisis

Current Situation  Economic cancer  Crippling energy crisis, terrorism, financial corruption and economic mismanagement by the last government  Increase in sales tax rate from 16% to 17% (June 2013)  Rupee depreciation  In increase in prices of imported consumer and non-consumer items  In October 2013, total food inflation was at 9.8%

Causes of Stagflation in Pakistan:  Reduced productive capacity of an economy  Inappropriate macroeconomic policies (fiscal and monetary)  Lower Tax/GDP ratio leading to higher fiscal deficit  Higher government borrowing from State Bank  Unemployment is another factor which causes stagflation  Social crimes are also be seen in the country

In-Effectiveness of Monetary Policy  The monetary policy is conducted by the central bank  State Bank of Pakistan is fully capable of implementing its own independent monetary policy Two broad objectives  Secure monetary stability  Find fuller utilization of country’s productive resources

Reasons for In-effectiveness  Lack of coordination between Fiscal and Monetary Authorities  SBP failed to control money supply  Failed to control rate of inflation within the set target level.

Suggestions and Conclusion  Government has to take some positive and tangible measures to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)  Stop capital flight from the country  State Bank of Pakistan should reduce the inflationary pressures  Enforcing an effective and independent monetary policy in the country

Continued…  Enhanced central bank independence will improve monetary policymaking  Government should focus on revenue side to improve the tax to GDP ratio  It is suggested by IMF to generate 1.5million employment per year
