Abstract

The present study investigates the direction of causality between stock market development and economic growth in the case of the United States. We use the Johansen-Juselius cointegration procedure followed by vector error-correction modelling. We examine both the long-run cointegrating relationships and associated causal orderings, and short-run interactions among the variables. The results indicate that there are stable long-run equilibrium relationships among the variables and that the stock market contains information about future changes in real income. © 2003, MCB UP Limited
