Nonlinear adjustments of consumption to housing prices, stock prices, income, and interest rates were investigated by employing panel data from 25 countries, spanning the period 2000 to 2016. This is the first study which STAR family models and nonlinear impulse response functions based on the local projections employed alternatively. We present three main pieces of evidence: (1) housing prices, stock prices, interest rates, and income exposures of consumption show time-varying and asymmetric behaviours across all countries, (2) housing wealth effects show stronger persistency and are generally larger than financial wealth effects in most of the countries, and (3) time-varying housing and financial wealth effects are high (low) during expansionary (recessionary) periods across all countries. We suggest to consider both monetary and fiscal policies, as well as the asymmetric and time-varying nature of house prices, stock prices, income, and interest rates on the top of any potential impact of the level of transition in these variables.

Wealth Effects on Household Final Consumption: Stock and Housing Market Channels
Coskun, Yener; Sencer Atasoy, Burak; Morri, Giacomo; Alp, Esra (MDPI AG, 2018-6-5)
The study primarily explores the linkage between wealth effects, arising from stock and housing market channels, and household final consumption for 11 advanced countries over the period from 1970 Q1 to 2015 Q4. As a modelling strategy, we employ regression analysis through the common correlated effects mean group (CCEMG) estimator, as well as Durbin-Hausman cointegration and Dumitrescu and Hurlin (2012) causality tests. The study provides various pieces of evidence through whole-panel and country-level ana...
Nonlinear models for UK macroeconomic time series
Ocal, N (2000-09-01)
This paper examines possible nonlinearities in growth rates of nine U.K. macroeconomic time series, namely gross domestic product, price, consumption, retail sales, personal disposable income, savings, investment, industrial production and unemployment, chosen as representative of series typically used to investigate business cycle fluctuations. By basing analysis on the class of smooth-transition autoregressive (STAR) models, it is assumed that the economy can be in one of two states with distinct dynamics...
Nonlinear models, composite longer leading indicator and forecasts for UK real GDP
Ocal, N (Informa UK Limited, 2006-05-20)
This paper examines the role of the Office for National Statistics Composite Longer Leading Indicator, in nonlinear business cycle models for growth rates of UK real gross domestic product (GDP). These models are of the smooth transition regression class, with the transition between "regimes'' expressed as functions of lagged changes in the leading indicator. In general, evidence is found of business cycle regime asymmetries, with increases and decreases in the leading indicator implying distinct responses ...
Dynamic correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets: The asymmetric impact of volatility expectations in oil, gold and financial markets
Kocaarslan, BARIŞ; Sarı, Ramazan; GORMUS, Alper; Soytaş, Uğur (2017-09-01)
This study investigates the impacts of volatility expectations in oil, gold, currency and the U.S. stock markets on time-varying conditional correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets. We use asymmetric dynamic conditional correlation and dynamic conditional correlation models to derive the time-varying relationships. We then examine the dynamic conditional correlations using quantile regressions for a detailed analysis of dependence structure containing non-linear and asymmetric interactions. Our res...
Analyzing Housing Market Dynamics using Linear and non-Parametric Models
Yılmaz, Bilgi; Yerlikaya Özkurt, Fatma; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2018-10-07)
This paper analyzes the dynamic effect of macroeconomic indicators, such as financial and commodity market indicators on national housing markets. Furthermore, it does not only focus on the impact of the variables but also introduces a variety of models that based on the generalized linear models and multivariate adaptive regression splines. The models help us to identify the macroeconomic drivers of housing markets. Since the US has an adequate housing market data, the empirical analysis within the paper f...
