A Note on the Diachronic Behaviour of the OECD Forecasts for Greece
AbstractIn this short paper a Gamma distributed lags model is used to study the diachronic responses between the actual data and the forecasts supplied by OECD the last 27 years for the case of the Greek Economy. According to our results we verified the potentials of the OECD to improve its forecasts as the size of the foreseeable period decreases. Irrespective of how good are the OECD’s forecasts, there is certainly much room for further improvement.
