Discussion Paper
Energy price shocks, capacity utilization and business cycle fluctuations

This study focuses on the analysis of energy price shocks in the generation of business cycle phenomena. These shocks are transmitted through endogenous fluctuations in capital utilization. The production structure of the model gives rise to an empirical measure of true technology growth that is exempt from recent criticisms levelled at the standard measure, i.e., Solow residual growth. The model is calibrated and evaluated for the U.S. economy using annual data over the 19601988 period. At business cycle frequencies, the model accounts for 7491 percent of the volatility of U.S. output; ...

The employment and wage effects of oil price shocks: a sectoral analysis

In this paper we use micro panel data to examine the effects of oil price shocks on employment and real wages, at the aggregate and industry levels.

Much of the literature examining the effects of oil shocks asks the question ?What is an oil shock?? and has concluded that oil-price increases are asymmetric in their effects on the US economy. That is, sharp increases in oil prices affect economic activity adversely, but sharp decreases in oil prices have no effect. We reconsider the directional symmetry of oil-price shocks by addressing the question Where is an oil shock? , the answer to which reveals a great deal of spatial/directional asymmetry across states. Although most states have typical responses to oil-price shocks?they are ...

Rising oil prices and economic turmoil: must they always go hand in hand?

When oil prices jump, people get jumpy-especially when the Fed is bumping up interest rate targets at the same time. Why? Because these two events have accompanied virtually every recession since World War II. At least until now.
