La macroéconomie-en-risque

Revue économique, 2015, vol. 66, issue 4, 769-782

Abstract: We propose to gauge the macroeconomic extreme risks from a measure so far dedicated to financial risk : the VaR. We dynamically evaluate, based on quantile regressions, extreme risks of the real economic activity. Using monthly time series of the us economy over the 1975M3-2012M7 period, our results suggest that financial intermediation stress indicators impact the risk of economic disaster that captures the possibility of a very large recession.
