Common shocks, common dynamics, and the international business cycle

  • Centoni, Marco
  • Cubadda, Gianluca
  • Hecq, Alain

This paper develops an econometric framework to understand whether co-movements observed in the international business cycle are the consequences of common shocks or common transmission mechanisms. Then we propose a new statistical measure of the importance of domestic and foreign shocks over the national business cycle. We show how to decompose the business cycle effects of permanent-transitory shocks into those due to their domestic and foreign components. We apply our analysis to G7 outputs.
