A reassessment of the twin deficits relationship

Abstract
This article provides new evidence on the relationship between the United States budget and current account deficits. Using a testing procedure advocated by Bierens, both deficits are found to be stationary around a nonlinear deterministic trend and are co-trended insofar as they share a common nonlinear deterministic trend.
