Quotation Antonakakis, Nikolaos, Badinger, Harald. 2016. Economic growth, volatility, and cross-country spillovers: new evidence for the G7 countries. Economic Modelling 52 (PartB), 352-365.




This study examines the linkages between output growth and output volatility in the G7 countries over the period 1958M2–2013M8. Using the VAR-based spillover index approach by Diebold and Yilmaz (2012) we find that: i) output growth and volatility are highly intertwined; ii) spillovers have reached unprecedented levels during the global financial crisis; and iii) the US has been the largest transmitter of growth and volatility shocks. Generalized impulse response analyses suggest moderate growth spillovers and sizable volatility spillovers across countries. Cross-variable effects indicate that volatility shocks lead to lower growth, while growth shocks reduce output volatility.
