Revisiting purchasing power parity for 16 Latin American countries: panel SURADF tests
In this study, we apply the panel Seemingly Unrelated Regressions Augmented Dickey-Fuller (SURADF) tests developed by Breuer et al. (2001) to revisit the validity of Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) for 16 Latin American countries. The empirical results from several panel-based unit root tests indicate that PPP does not hold for these 16 countries under study. However, panel SURADF tests indicate that PPP is valid for 3 of these 16 countries. These results have important policy implications for these 16 Latin American countries under study.
