VAR Estimates of the Housing and Stock Wealth Effects: Cross-country Evidence

Sheng Guo and Umut Unal ()

No 1103, Working Papers from Florida International University, Department of Economics

Abstract: We estimate the wealth effects of housing and stock market wealth using time-series data for eight developed countries. In estimation we employ the structural vector-autoregressive regressions (SVAR), which articulate the dynamic interactions of shocks to housing prices, stock values, and disposable incomes. Our results show that for these countries the initial consumption response to housing price shocks is greater than to stock market capitalization shocks, but the long-run consumption response to the latter is more persistent than to the former.
