The relative dynamics of the current account and investment in the G7-Economies

Hoffmann, Mathias (2001) The relative dynamics of the current account and investment in the G7-Economies The Economic Journal, 111, (471), pp. 148-163. (doi:10.1111/1468-0297.00625).

This paper contributes to the empirics of the intertemporal approach to the current account. We use a cointegrated VAR framework to identify permanent and transitory components of country-specific and global shocks. Our approach allows us to investigate empirically the sensitivity to persistence implied by many forward-looking models and our results shed new light on the excess volatility of investment encountered by Glick and Rogoff (1995). In G7 data, we find the relative current-account and investment response to be in line with the intertemporal approach.
