Abstract

This paper proposes classical business cycle turning points for a number of countries based on industrial production. The countries selected are the G7 together with most major European countries. This information enables us to examine the international nature of cyclical movements. In particular, we examine whether cyclical movements are similar across different countries and consider the lead/lag relationships between countries at peaks and troughs.

Keywords: Classical business cycles, international business, turning points

JEL Classification: E32
