The synchronization of GDP growth in the G7 during US recessions
Using the Dynamic Conditional Correlation (DCC) model due to Engle (2002), we estimate time-varying correlations of quarterly real GDP growth among the G7 countries. In general, we find that rather heterogeneous patterns of international synchronization exist during US recessions. During the 2007--2009 recession, however, international co-movement increased substantially.
