Japan’s output gap estimation and ℓ 1 trend filtering
This paper estimates Japan’s output gap using the recently developed ℓ 1 trend filter, which is an alternative to the popular Hodrick–Prescott (HP) filter. This new filter provides a piecewise linear trend line, which means it possibly provides better output gap estimates than the HP filter does for an economy such as Japan that has experienced some structural breaks.
