We examine the term structure of interest rates for the United States, Germany, and Japan over the period 1982-2000, using a nonlinear multi-variate vector equilibrium correction-modeling framework that allows for asymmetric adjustment and regime shifts. The model has a very general underlying theoretical rationale that allows for time-varying term premia and other short-run deviations from the expectations model of the term structure. The empirical models fit well, display regime switches closely correlated with key monetary policy variables, and have good forecasting properties.
