This is not surprising. Now correlation is not causation, and in vtew of the exceedingly sparse nominal wage data, little faith can be put in contemporaneous correlations like those just shown. , that population pressure forces up prices and that the lag of wages behind prices produces a fall in real wages (as long as the gap is not eliminated). This being the case, a formal causality test might reasonably show inflation causing real wages. To search for this possibility, the Granger-causality test was applied to each of these data sets, for lags up to five years, but there was absolutely no sign of any causal relationship (or even a reverse-causal relationship) in these data.

In any case, it is an annual rate, unfortunately, so the calculation in the table is approximate. It is hard to generalize, but one surely notices that the three war periods show nominal interest rates in excess of the following peacetime period (it would be the preceding period for the last set, of course).
