Oil and Macroeconomic Uncertianty

Review of Environment, Energy and Economics - Re3, 2015

Abstract: In this article we discuss the concepts of macroeconomic uncertainty, oil price uncertainty and oil price shocks. Given the relevance of oil and macroeconomic uncertainty in both academic research and the political sphere, we illustrate how economic uncertainty can be operationally defined and empirically measured. After surveying some common proxies of macroeconomic uncertainty, we describe our proposed measure of oil price uncertainty, and we illustrate the contribution of its underlying components, namely uncertainties related to oil consumption and production, economic activity and oil inventories.
