We estimate a financial stress index for the Czech Republic and examine its development during
the 2002–2014 period. We find a marked increase in financial stress at the beginning of the global
financial crisis with a decrease to nearly pre-crisis levels by the end of our study period. Next,
we estimate vector autoregression models of the Czech economy and find that financial stress
has systematic effects on output, prices and interest rates, with the maximum response occurring
approximately one and a half years after the shock. Specifically, an increase in financial stress
is associated with higher unemployment, lower prices and lower interest rates, indicating its
detrimental effects on the real economy.
