Summary/Abstract: According to Uribe and Schmitt-Grohé (2014) business cycles in emerging market economies are correlated with the interest rate that these countries face in international financial markets. From this statement follows a question: what fraction of business cycle fluctuations is due to movements in country interest rate? Uribe and Yue (2006) offer the vector auto-regression model specification to quantify the macroeconomic effects of world interest rate shocks and country’s interest spread shocks.
