Abstract

This paper provides a method for the analysis of the spatial and temporal diffusion of shocks in a dynamic system We use changes in real house prices within the UK economy at the level of regions to illustrate its use Adjustment to shocks involves both a region specific and a spatial effect Shocks to a dominant region - London - are propagated contemporaneously and spatially to other regions They in turn impact on other regions with a delay We allow for lagged effects to echo back to the dominant region London in turn is influenced by international developments through its link to New York and other financial centers It is shown that New York house prices have a direct effect on London house prices We analyse the effect of shocks using generalised spatio temporal impulse responses These highlight the diffusion of shocks both over time (as with the conventional impulse responses) and over space (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc All rights reserved
