The evidence suggests that the United States and Japan remain the key sources of growth spillovers in the recovery process. France was also found to play an important role for other European countries. Some studies have also contrasted the effects of the United States, euro area and Japan on other economies. In this instance, Arora and Vamvakidis (2006) used a 5-year average panel regression approach for 101 countries and established much larger spillovers. 66 percentage points increase in other countries’ growth.

The historical decompositions reflect both the size of the impulse response and country-specific growth shock. In this section we present an analysis of the historical contributions, over time, of the G8 member countries’ GDP growth to South African growth. We further categorise this sample into the pre-, during and post-crisis periods. 11(a) represents the overall contribution. The contributions from each country are, in turn, compared to the South African long-run average growth rate. This enables us to identify the (1) countries that were a drag on South African growth; (2) those that contributed positively and pulled domestic growth out of the recession and (3) those that will possibly impact long-run domestic growth.

We estimate a small open economy model which includes US GDP growth, G8 member country’s GDP growth, South African trade or financial variable and the South African GDP growth rate. The model is estimated using this ordering and we add various dummies as exogenous variables. The South African variables that capture various transmission channels are trade (real exports), commodity prices, equity prices, bond yields, exchanges rates and business confidence index. We estimate the four-variable model VARs in this section using two lags selected by the AIC.
