We develop a bivariate spectral Granger-causality test that can be applied at eachindividual frequency of the spectrum. The spectral approach to Granger causality hasthe distinct advantage that it allows to disentangle (potentially) di®erent Granger-causality relationships over di®erent time horizons. We illustrate the usefulness ofthe proposed approach in the context of the predictive value of European productionexpectation surveys.
