Classical Bisiness Cycles in America: are national business cycles synchronised?
(Documento de investigación 96)
This paper provides further evidence on the synchronization between business cycle regimes in seven American countries by using a classical business cycles approach. Despite recent increasing international economic transactions within this continent, our results suggest that national business cycles are largely idiosyncratic, except for the United States and Canada. Thus, international coordination of macroeconomic policies may not be effective, at least in the short-run. Also, as a by product, we find evidence of asymmetries between expansions and recessions in mean, volatility and duration in most countries.
