''Travel hysteresis in the US current account after the mid-1980s''
( 2005, Vol. 14 No.2 )
Following the real appreciation of the US dollar in the first half of the 1980s, travel expenditures in the current account soared. Employing standard regression techniques as well as Markov-switching regime analysis we show that such expenditures did not return to their pre-appreciation levels thereafter. The permanent increase suggests the presence of travel hysteresis in the US current account after the mid-1980s.
