Mean Reversion of the Current Account and Sustainability: Evidence from European Countries

Kurmaş Akdoğan

Working Papers from Research and Monetary Policy Department, Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey

Abstract: Stationarity of the current account is suggested as an indicator of the current account sustainability in the literature. We explore the presence of mean-reverting behaviour in current accounts of 24 European countries, using linear and nonlinear unit root tests. Our results suggest mean reversion of the current account-to-GDP ratios for almost two-thirds of the countries in our sample, hence; provide supporting evidence for the current account sustainability of these countries.
