DescriptionContentsAuthors

This book presents recent theoretical and empirical advances on business cycles analysis with particular attention to Euro-zone characteristics. It also identifies applications of sophisticated tools by private and public institutions involved in the analysis of economic fluctuations and seeks to increase interaction between the academics, researchers and institutions in the area of business cycle analysis. This volume encompasses methodological advances in several important areas for business cycle analysis, such as multivariate statistical methods, synchronization and convergence, composite indicators, turning points dating and detection, output gap measurement, as well as innovative applications of the existing theories and methods to the economy of the Euro-zone.
