Testing the Global Banking Glut Hypothesis

Maria Teresa Punzi () and Karlo Kauko

Department of Economics Working Papers from Vienna University of Economics and Business, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper presents VAR results on the recent economic history of the U.S and focuses on the dependence of U.S. macrofinancial variables on international capital flows. Both gross and net flows are included in the analysis. The results indicate that cross-border funding has affected the build-up in the U.S. housing market irrespective of how these flows are defined and measured. Both the savings glut hypothesis and the banking glut hypothesis are supported by these findings. However, net banking flows appear to explain the higher volatility in the increase in house prices as well as the mortgage loan boom.
