International Real Business Cycles
The authors ask whether a two-country business cycle model can account simultaneously for domestic and international aspects of business cycles.

In this data, outputs are generally more highly correlated across countries than consumptions. In the model they see the opposite. Copyright 1992 by University of Chicago Press.
