ABSTRACT

This paper empirically investigates the effects of house price on household consumption in Korea, considering business cycle and household debt. For thepurpose, time series analyses such as the cointegration test and the vector error correction model were utilized in the paper for the macroeconomic data series. The estimation results showed that there was no significant effect of house price on consumption, and that business cycle had a significant impact on consumption which affected house price. Also, household debt had an insignificant negative impact on consumption. These results imply that it is equilibrium when house prices are determined by fundamentals, and that increasing house price may not enhance consumption as well as business cycle, rather, household debt could work as a risk factor in stabilizing business cycle.
