Global interdependence is a complex issue that has significant policy implications for both tranquil and crisis periods. With the ongoing globalization process and the accompanied trade and financial integration, national economies are subject to increasing influences of external shocks. The identification of the interdependence pattern and its underlying causes would definitely be useful for academics to understand the shock propagation mechanism and for policymakers to design stabilization policies. This edited volume collects papers presented in The 2011 CESifo Venice Summer Institute Workshop on “Global Interdependence, Decoupling and Recoupling,” which was devoted to taking stock of studies on global interdependence and to advance our understanding of the shock propagation mechanism in the increasingly integrated world economy.

Keywords:   Decoupling, Recoupling, Business cycles, Global interdependence
