We develop a bivariate spectral Granger-causality test that can be applied at each individual frequency of the spectrum. The spectral approach to Granger causality has the distinct advantage that it allows to disentangle (potentially) different Granger-causality relationships over different time horizons. We illustrate the usefulness of the proposed approach in the context of the predictive value of European production expectation surveys.
