Abstract

The importance of connections between macroeconomic growth and financial markets is studied for a long time in the academic research. The special case of the developing countries, which is the case of the Central and Eastern European economies highlights this phenomenon even more, as many of them are still at the verge of reforming their economies. Our paper proposes the use of MIDAS regression in an analysis of the connections between macroeconomic growth and equity markets in this region in order to exhibit the importance of the latter for the reform strategies.
