An examination of business cycle synchronization among these countries using simple descriptive statistics shows that synchronized slowdowns have been the norm rather than the exception and that the slowdown in 2000-2001 largely followed patterns seen in the past.

The paper also identifies the international business cycle with an asymptotic dynamic factor model. Two global factors explain roughly 80 percent of the variance in G-7 output gaps at business cycle frequencies. The factor model decomposes the common part of national output fluctuations into two factors, one capturing the average G-7 cycle and one that corrects for phase and amplitude differences.

We also found some evidence supporting the hypothesis that global shocks were the main force behind the slowdown in 2000-2001.
