Abstract

This article describes the business cycle in Tunisia ? in terms of the ?classical cycle? and the ?growth cycle?? andcharacterizes its main regularities. We find that?: (1) classical-cycle contraction phases are heterogeneous and triggeredmainly by external shocks?; (2) supply shocks, unrelated to demand shocks, are the chief determinant of economic activityfluctuations?; (3) Tunisian growth-cycle regularities differ from those observed in Morocco and Jordan?; (4) the Tunisiangrowth cycle is weakly synchronized with those of Jordan and Morocco, owing to a strong idiosyncratic component and alow common-shock weight.
