Fluctuations in emerging economies: regional and global factors

Abstract: Discrepancies in output fluctuations between emerging and developed economies are welldocumented in the literature. Differences however within developing economies have not been sufficiently scrutinised. This paper argues that global and regional shocks primarily drive the business cycle in emerging economies, and provides estimated results for cycle variance decomposition. The paper also offers a theoretical framework to check on the set of stylised facts common and specific to emerging economies. It finds that the proposed model is robust in accounting for region-specific features.
