Purchasing Power Parity, Productivity Differentials And Non-Linearity
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to apply a symmetric band threshold autoregressive model to investigate the non-linear adjustment of the real pound-dollar rate over a period from 1885 to 2003. After controlling for the Harrod-Balassa-Samuelson effects, we find evidence to support a non-linear mean reversion of the real pound-dollar rate. Moreover, the estimated half-life is about two years with large shocks. We therefore provide a solution to the purchasing power parity puzzle. Copyright � 2009 The Authors.
