Abstract

This paper provides an empirical description of some stylized facts of growth for the Spanish economy with the purpose of evaluating the adequacy of the neoclassical model of growth as a structure on which we can build a theory of the economic cycle for the Spanish economy. On the other hand, the description of the fluctuations in the Spanish economy is expanded and analyzed by taking into account different theories developed in literature. In this work, we use three filters to remove trends from the data: first differences, Hodrick-Prescott filter and Baxter-King filter. The task here is to check whether the stylized facts keep, at least, qualitatively equal with different filters, so that invariant stylized facts with different filters obtain an additional confirmation.
