UK Output Variability and Growth: Some Further Evidence

Abstract

This paper reexamines the empirical evidence concerning the relationship between U.K. output variability and growth using GARCH-M models applied to postwar monthly industrial production data, estimated under quasimaximum-likelihood with the consistent variance-covariance estimator of T. Bollerslev and J. M. Wooldridge (1992). In contrast to previous results suggesting a significant positive relationship between U.K. output variability and growth, the author finds no significant relationship. Rather than suggesting a connection between risk and return in the attitudes of investors, his findings may be interpreted as more supportive of macroeconomic models that dichotomize the determination of output growth and variability.
