Integration of Long-Term Interest Rates: Empirical Evidence for G7 Countries

Burcu Kiran

Global Economic Review, 2012, vol. 41, issue 3, 279-290

Abstract: This article investigates the fractional cointegration relationship between long-term interest rates of G7 countries over the period from 1990:01 to 2010:04 by estimating the cointegrating regressions for possible bivariate, trivariate and four-variate subsystems as well as the full system. The obtained results indicate that long-term interest rates are fractionally cointegrated for bivariate subsystems of Canada--France, Canada--Japan and Canada--UK and four-variate subsystem of Canada--USA--France--UK, implying integration.
