Stock Market Volatility and the Business Cycle
Burkhard Raunig and
Monetary Policy & the Economy, 2010, issue 2, 54–63
In this paper we provide a review of the literature on the link between stock market volatility and aggregate demand. In particular, we focus on the implications of the so-called uncertainty hypothesis according to which it is primarily the uncertainty associated with stock market fluctuations that influences aggregate demand. Empirical studies find that stock market volatility indeed feeds back into the real economy.
