Consumption Asymmetry and the Stock Market: Empirical Evidence
Nicholas Apergis ()
Stephen M. Miller
Working papers from University of Connecticut, Department of Economics
This paper examines whether U.S. stock-market wealth asymmetrically affects consumption. After identifying asymmetric behavior for consumption and stock market wealth, the results confirm that stock-market wealth asymmetrically affects real per capita consumption. Negative 'news' affects consumption more than positive 'news'.
