The Composition and Cyclical Behavior of Trade Flows in Emerging Economies

Contents:

Author Info

  • Reinout De Bock

Abstract

The composition and cyclical properties of imports are similar in developed economies and emerging economies (EM) but this is not the case for exports. Unlike developed economies, (i) EM export few or only a selective set of capital goods and (ii) capital good and overall exports tend to be acyclical. The lack of procyclicality in exports helps to explain the strong countercyclicality of EM trade balances observed in previous studies. A quantitative exercise demonstrates how the standard small open economy business cycle model could be improved upon by incorporating some of these features.
