Empirical Modelling of Contagion: A Review of Methodologies

Author

Abstract

The existing literature promotes a number of alternative methods to test for the presence of contagion during financial market crises. This paper reviews those methods, and shows how they are related in a unified framework. A number of extensions are also suggested which allow for multivarite testing, endogeneity issues and structural breaks.
