|dc.description.abstract||We use a new test for cointegration that allows for structural breaks in the cointegrating relationship to test for bilateral interest rate convergence in the European Monetary System. Contrary to previous studies that employed standard cointegration tests, we find strong evidence for convergence between German nominal interest rates and interest rates in four other EMS countries in the 1979-1995 period.||en|
