High Yielders: the Spread on German Interest Rates

  • Carlo Ambrogio Favero
  • Francesco Giavazzi
  • Luigi Spaventa

This paper is a first attempt at evaluating the determinants of the interest rate differentials on government bonds between high yielders, namely Italy, Spain and Sweden, and Germany. In particular the authors concentrate on daily frequencies, where the relevance of economic fundamentals is rather limited, and address the question of the relative importance of local and global factors in the determination of such spread. They identify and measure three components of total yield differentials: one due to expectations of exchange rate depreciation--which they call the exchange rate factor--another which reflects the market assessment of default risk and a last one due to the different taxation treatment of long-term yields.
