The long-range dependence paradigm for macroeconomics and finance. (English) Zbl 1026.62114

Summary: The long-range dependence paradigm appears to be a suitable description of the data generating process for many observed economic time series. This is mainly due to the fact that it naturally characterizes time series displaying a high degree of persistence in the form of a long lasting effect of unanticipated shocks, yet exhibiting mean reversion. Whereas linear long-range dependent time series models have been extensively used in macroeconomics, empirical evidence from financial time series prompted the development of nonlinear long-range dependent time series models, in particular models of changing volatility. We discuss empirical evidence of long-range dependence as well as the theoretical issues, both for economics and econometrics, that such evidence has stimulated.
