The stationarity of consumption–income ratios: Evidence from bootstrapping confidence intervals
We study the stationarity of consumption–income ratio (APC) in OECD countries. To that end, we use three different bootstrapping techniques to construct the 90% confidence intervals. The results show that the APC is non-stationary in most of the countries.
