Classical business cycles in Latin America: Turning points, asimmetries and international synchronisation

Registered author(s):

    A classical business cycles approach is applied to study turning points, asymmetries and international synchronization of business cycle regimes (expansion/recession) for several Latin American countries. The results suggest that recessions are characterized by deeper change, less persistence, and greater volatility than expansions. However, existing evidence about intra-regional economic transactions suggests that these associations might be explained by similar economic policies and common external shocks.
