In this paper a mannequin is offered and estimated that explains real long-term interest rates by method of developments in low-frequency and high-frequency economic elements in a multi-country framework, for 17 OECD countries for the reason that early-1980s. The results indicate that the low-frequency part of real rates is set by fundamentals corresponding to the rate of return on enterprise capital, portfolio threat, inflation uncertainty, and indicators of future saving and funding balances. Influences on the high-frequency part embrace monetary policy actions and shocks to inflation. We suggest an method to measuring the state of the economic system by way of textual evaluation of enterprise news. We then use our news consideration estimates as inputs into statistical models of numerical economic time series. We demonstrate that these text-based inputs precisely track a extensive range of economic activity measures and that they’ve incremental forecasting energy for macroeconomic outcomes, above and beyond normal numerical predictors. Finally, we use our model to retrieve the news-based narratives that underly “shocks” in numerical economic knowledge.
