dc.description.abstractIn this paper we test the well-known hypothesis of Obstfeld and Rogoff (2000) that tradecosts are the key to explaining the so-called Feldstein-Horioka puzzle. Using a gravityframework in an intertemporal context, we provide strong support for the hypothesis and wereconcile our results with the so-called home bias puzzle. Interestingly, this requires afundamental revision of Obstfeld and Rogoff's argument. A further novelty of our work is intying bilateral trade behavior to desired aggregate trade balances and desired intertemporaltrade.en_US
