One of the principal goals of monetary policy pursued by Central Banks worldwide is virtually price stability. Understanding inflationary dispositions and its determinants is therefore a critical issue from the monetary authorities, scholars and the policy makers viewpoint. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the budget deficit and inflation nexus for Uganda for the period 1980–2016. This is because budget deficit in Uganda has been one of the top topical issues of concern in the country’s historical economic problems. The study employs the cointegration and error correction model (ECM) as well as the pairwise Granger causality. This is because the ECM technique has become a tool of choice for estimation and testing the multivariate relationships among the non-stationary data in much of the time series macro-econometrics.
