Abstract :

Using  a  time  series  data  the  study  employed  Granger-Causality  and
Vector  Auto-Regression  (VAR)  techniques  in  the  analysis  of  the  data
collected. This study assessed the effects of deficit financing on trade
balance  in  Nigeria  from  1980  -  2008.  Our  short-run  dynamic  result
indicates a positive  relationship  between  Deficit  financing  and  Trade
balance (surplus). While the long-term result posits that an increase in
deficit financing diminishes trade deficit in Nigeria. The implication of
the above result is that deficit financing is an available instrument for
government to improve trade in the shortrun and that in the long-run
deficit  financing  could  be  used  to  reduce  trade  deficit  in  Nigeria  if
properly managed by government.
