The degree of synchronization of Asian business cycles with the rest of the world has garnered much attention with the continent's increased trade integration over recent decades. However, the empirical evidence on Asian synchronization with the rest of the world has been mixed, with some papers finding that Asian nations are becoming more regionally integrated and less integrated with nations outside of Asia. The relatively robust recovery of Asian nations following the global financial crisis has only reinforced opinions that Asian synchronization with the rest of the world is not guaranteed.
The papers in this issue examine the topic of Asian business cycle synchronization from four different angles. You can read the latest research into this fascinating topic online now:
