The paper showed that With this, policy makers are suggested to encourage OBOR countries to expand and upgrade their system in terms of transportation infrastructure, human capital, culture, and education. However, there seems to be a short-run or long-run relationship among the macroeconomic variables.Purpose: This study investigated the impact of the inflation rate, unemployment rate and interest rate on real gross domestic product per capita (RGDPPC) (proxy for economic growth) and proffered recommendations towards enhancing economic growth and to reduce the distasteful effects of inflation rate, unemployment rate and interest rate in Nigeria in this present time economic challenges.Research methodology: This study applied a linear dynamic model Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) modeling technique to analyze the short-run dynamics and long-run relationship of the economic growth in Nigeria over the sample period between 1984 and 2017 using annual secondary data extracted from World Bank Development Indicators Report (last updated January 2019).Results: The empirical results showed that there was long-run relationship between inflation rate, unemployment rate and interest rate on real gross domestic product per capita (proxy for economic growth) in Nigeria. The result further revealed that only unemployment rate had a significant positive impact on real gross domestic product per capita in the long-run and inflation rate had a significant negative impact on real gross domestic product per capita in the short-run.Novelty: Therefore, the study concluded that unemployment rate and inflation rate proved to have significant impacts on economic growth in the long-run and short-run respectively.

The results of the ARDL bounds testing, FMOLS, DOLS, static OLS and CCR estimations indicate that there is a trade-off relationship between the variables, and higher unemployment leads to lower inflation in the long-run. the Phillips curve is interpreted as a certain law, a certain dogma. 4 This memo examines two of the staff models of core PCE inflation: (i) an The plots of the cumulative sum of squares of recursive residuals (CUSUMQ) confirm the stability of the long-run parameters. The large negative shock to life satisfaction at the time of unemployment using longitudinal data provides strong evidence for a causal effect. Also, inflation is not a determinant of economic activity whereas the Central Bank’s discount rate (MRR) is a determinant of economic growth during the study period. The starting point is the conventional unemployment rate Phillips curve, which is examined in a simulated out-of-sample forecasting framework.
