The relation between estimated parameter eta and market impact is also discussed in Section6.3. The results also suggest that the news-based economic policy uncertainty index, which is widely used in developed countries has not properly captured the state of economic uncertainty in India. On the contrary, the Economic Surprise Index (ii), barely reacts to the events and exhibits limited performance in explaining business cycles. Each national EPU index reflects the relative frequency of own-country newspaper articles that contain a trio of terms pertaining to the economy, uncertainty and policy-related matters.

This paper develops a macroeconomic uncertainty index based on the methodology proposed by Jurado, Ludvigson, and Ng (2015).Our approach streamlines the computation of the macroeconomic uncertainty index by using a state-space model that allows us to obtain the unforecastable component of the macroeconomic variables used to construct the index and the latent factors. For example, Figure 5 shows the flow of capital from emerging market equities to gold during the 2007-2009 global recession.

We find that, since 2008, economic policy uncertainty in the United States has been at a level approximately two times its long run average. We show the usefulness of the index in studying the heterogeneity of uncertainty across Euro Area countries as well as the spillover effects via a network approach. adobe:docid:indd:5750aa39-d2e3-11db-b477-eeb91356db4d 20 Figure 2 shows the relationship between the CAPE ratio and the macroeconomic uncertainty index.
