Panel cointegration analysis of the Fisher effect: Evidence from the US, the UK, and Japan
AbstractThis paper analyzes the Fisher effect using a panel of monthly data from January 1990 to December 2010 for three major countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. Our empirical results contribute to the existing empirical literature in two ways. First, the study conducts panel cointegration tests and estimation. Second, it examines the validity of the Fisher hypothesis using short-term and long-term nominal interest rates. The empirical results show that the full Fisher effect holds from January 1990 to December 2010.
