Michael Clements

No 270768, Economic Research Papers from University of Warwick - Department of Economics

Abstract: We present a novel approach to assessing the attentiveness of professional forecasters to news about the macroeconomy. We Önd evidence that professional forecasters, taken as a group, do not always update their estimates of the current state of the economy to reáect the latest releases of revised estimates of key data.
