      Interactions between eurozone and United States booms and busts and among major eurozone economies are analyzed by introducing a panel Markov-switching VAR model. The model is well suitable for a multi-country cyclical ...
    • International Transmission of Macroeconomic Uncertainty in Small Open Economies: An Empirical Approach 

      Cross, Jamie L.; Hou, Chenghan; Poon, Aubrey (CAMP Working Paper Series Paper No. 12/2018;, Working paper, 2018-11)
      We estimate the effects of domestic and international sources of macroeconomic uncertainty in three small open economy (SOE) inflation targeting countries: Australia, Canada and New Zealand. To this end, we propose a structural ...
    • Is Monetary Policy Always Effective? Incomplete Interest Rate Pass-through in a DSGE Model 

      Bjørnland, Hilde C.; Binning, Andrew; Maih, Junior (CAMP Working Paper Series;09/2019, Working paper, 2019-11)
      We estimate a regime-switching DSGE model with a banking sector to explain incomplete and asymmetric interest rate pass-through, especially in the presence of a binding zero lower bound (ZLB) constraint. The model is ...
    • Joint Prediction Bands for Macroeconomic Risk Management 

      Akram, Farooq; Binning, Andrew; Maih, Junior (CAMP Working Paper Series;5/2016, Working paper, 2016)
      In this paper we address the issue of assessing and communicating the joint probabilities implied by density forecasts from multivariate time series models. We focus our attention in three areas. First, we investigate a ...
    • Large Time-Varying Volatility Models for Electricity Prices 

      Gianfreda, Angelica; Ravazzolo, Francesco; Rossini, Luca (CAMP Working Paper Series;05/2020, Working paper, 2020-07-02)
      We study the importance of time-varying volatility in modelling hourly electricity prices when fundamental drivers are included in the estimation. This allows us to contribute to the literature of large Bayesian VARs by ...
    • Local Natural Resource Curse? 

      Borge, Lars-Erik; Parmer, Pernille; Torvik, Ragnar (CAMP Working Paper Series;5/2013, Working paper, 2013)
      The large variation in revenues among Norwegian local governments can partly be explained by revenues collected from hydropower production. This revenue variation, combined with good data availability, can be used to ...
    • Macroeconomics in the time of the Corona 

      Mehlum, Halvor; Torvik, Ragnar (CAMP Working Paper Series;04/2020, Working paper, 2020-06)
      For a developed market economies, the corona crisis is a new type of crisis, but this crisis has parallels to economies at other times, and to crises at other places. We discuss some mechanisms from the traditional macro ...
