Monetary policy and country risk
AbstractThis article develops an econometric model in order to study country risk behavior forsix emerging economies (Argentina, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Korea and Indonesia),by expanding the Country Beta Risk Model of Harvey and Zhou (1993), Erb et. al.(1996a, 1996b) and Gangemi et. al. (2000). Toward this end, we have analyzed theimpact of macroeconomic variables, especially monetary policy, upon country risk,by way of a time varying parameter approach. The results indicate an inefficient andunstable effect of monetary policy upon country risk in periods of crisis. However, thiseffect is stable in other periods, and the Favero-Giavazzi effect is not verified for alleconomies, with an opposite effect being observed in many cases.
