Interdependence of the banking sector and the real sector: evidence from OECD countries

Şendeniz Yüncü, İlkay
Aydogan, Kursat
This article investigates the validity of the credit view hypothesis in eleven OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries over the period 1987:QI to 2003:QIII. The existence of a long-run relationship between the banking sector and the real sector is supported by cointegration test results. For some of the countries in the sample, Granger causality tests show the leading role of the banking sector in the real sector, thus supporting the credit view hypothesis, whereas for other countries, the same tests indicate no interdependence.


Purchasing power parity in OECD countries: Evidence from panel unit root
Kalyoncu, Huseyin; Kalyoncu, Kahraman (Elsevier BV, 2008-05-01)
This paper investigates the validity of purchasing power parity (PPP) for 25 OECD countries by using a panel unit-root methodology. The procedure used here is to examine stationarity of real exchange rate. Using ADF unit-root test on single time-series, it is found that real exchange rate of all OECD countries have unit root. This outcome, however, might be due to the generally low power of this test. The aim of this paper is to reconsider this issue by exploiting the extra information provided by the combi...
Financial development, exchange rate regimes and the Feldstein-Horioka puzzle: evidence from the MENA region
Özmen, Erdal (Informa UK Limited, 2007-04-01)
This article investigates whether the Feldstein and Horioka (1980) argument on domestic saving-investment relationship is supported by the data of the countries in the Middle East and North Africa region when financial development levels and exchange rate regimes are taken into account. To this end, we employ both the Auroregressive Distributed Lag bounds cointegration test and panel mean group procedures. The results support the view that a successful international financial integration requires compatible...
Estimating the surplus in the periphery: an application to Turkey
Somel, C (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2003-11-01)
This note discusses how the economic surplus concept can be used to analyse the constraints the world system imposes on economic development. An estimation of the surplus for Turkey for 1980-96 utilises Kohler's unequal exchange analysis to measure the transfer of surplus abroad and the official minimum wage to calculate essential private consumption. The estimation yields the allocation of the surplus between nonessential consumption, investment and unrequited transfers abroad. The note assesses Lippit's a...
The impact of value added components of GDP and FDI on economic freedom in Europe
SAYARI MARCUM, NAZ; Sarı, Ramazan; Hammoudeh, Shawkat (Elsevier BV, 2018-06-01)
This paper investigates the possibility of a long-run relationship between the Economic Freedom Index (EFI), Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and value added components of GDP in thirty Eastern, Central and Western European countries. The study further examines whether the FDI and sector-specific components of GDP have any significant impact on economic freedom for these countries. We use annual data and employ Pedroni and KAO panel cointegration analyses to assess the long-run relationships. The results ind...
The Granger-causality between health care expenditure and output: a panel data approach
Erdil, Erkan (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
This study investigates the Granger-causality relationship between real per capita GDP and real per capita health care expenditure by employing a large macro panel data set with a VAR representation. The findings verify that the dominant type of Granger-causality is bidirectional. In instances that we found one-way causality, the pattern is not homogenous: Our analyses show that one-way causality generally runs from income to health in low- and middle-income countries whereas the reverse holds for high-inco...
