Causality tests of the relationship between the twin deficits
We re-examine the causality between the twin deficits by testing for Granger non-causality between BD and CAD based on extended causality tests initially developed by Toda and Yamamoto (1995). Using international data from a sample of twenty developed and developing countries, we find evidence of causality (unidirectional or bi-directional) between the twin deficits for some developing countries. However, the results for developed countries are less persuasive. The empirical findings of this study are robust to alternative and independent causality testing procedures.
