Abstract

We estimate Shiller portfolio weights for OECD countries and US states. We find that the income of US federal states is derived to about 50 percent from own output, that of OECD countries to about 60 percent.This suggests that US states display considerable ’home bias at home’ and that the international portfolio home bias may be relatively less severe than evidence based on models of optimal portfolio allocation would suggest. We relate the estimated portfolio weights to the structure of regional and international business cycles. In particular, we can reproduce the empirical evidence on inter-state and international income flows.
