This paper highlights the nonlinear relationship between inflation and investment in Jordan. Applying a threshold model over the period 1980-2016, the results reveal that investment is retracted by inflation when inflation rate reaches a threshold of 10%. This suggests that inflation rates should remain below 10% to sustain and improve investment levels.
