I am writing a paper on the effects of the 1973 OPEC Oil Embargo on the US Economy. I was wondering what would be some good models/statistical tools that can be used to explain the effects of the price of oil on the US economy. The paper revolves around the price elasticity (or lack thereof) of oil. Any suggestions would be great.
The rate of inflation between price charged and value we expected it was worth at the time gives some information on elasticity. The history shows how inflation adjustment climbs going backward in time from the point at which dollars were assigned the value of 1 (present).
