Published by segunpopoola1849
The predictive power of the yield spread has been widely studied and documented in the United States and a number of countries outside the United States.
However, little or no studies have been conducted in Africa.

This paper studies the predictive power of the yield spread and ascertains its usefulness for predicting real economic growth in Africa. It buttresses the predictive ability of the yield spread particularly in South Africa where the results suggest that the yield spread as a predictive indicator of future economic activities performs better at longer horizons.
The paper further identifies the appropriate model for forecasting the yield spread in Morocco, Nigeria and South Africa.
