Abstract

In this paper we utilize a multivariate STSM model in order to estimate trend and cyclical components on a set of business and financial economic variables for Slovenia. The results show that financial cycles are somewhat longer compared to business cycles. Comparing the standard deviations of financial and business cycles give inconclusive results on average, but excluding particular macroeconomic variables that are by definition more volatile, we see that also standard deviations of financial cycles tend to be larger. From the economic policy implications point of view the results might not come as a surprise, but are utterly important for additionally implementing financial stability goals alongside the monetary policy mandate, as financial cycles seem to be longer and deeper compared to business cycles.
