Productivity and exchange rate dynamics: supporting the Harrod-Balassa-Samuelson hypothesis through an ‘errors in variables’ analysis
Standard tests of the Harrod-Balassa-Samuelson (HBS) hypothesis treat productivity levels in and across countries as fixed and observable, and offer little empirical support for the hypothesis. If productivity follows a jump-diffusion process, these standard tests will generate biased estimates, measuring productivity levels with error. This paper instead proposes an ‘errors in variables’ approach to correct this bias, and finds support for the HBS hypothesis assuming a jump-diffusion process...[Show more]
