Bayesian forecasting with highly correlated predictors

Dimitris Korobilis

Working Papers from Business School - Economics, University of Glasgow

Abstract: This paper considers Bayesian variable selection in regressions with a large number of possibly highly correlated macroeconomic predictors. I show that by acknowledging the correlation structure in the predictors can improve forecasts over existing popular Bayesian variable selection algorithms.
