To measure terrorist activities, we employ the ITERATE data set from Mickolus et al. (1993). The economic data are obtained from the update to the Summers and Heston (1991) data set. The ITERATE project quantiﬁes characteristics, activities and impacts of transnational terrorist groups. In order to be considered an international/ transnational terrorist event, the deﬁnition in ITERATE is as follows: ‘the use, or threat of use, of anxiety-inducing, extra-normal violence for political purposes by any individual or group, whether acting for or in opposition to established governmental authority, when such action is intended to inﬂuence the attitudes and behavior of a target group wider than the immediate victims and when, through the nationality or foreign ties of its perpetrators, its location, the nature of its institutional or human victims, or the mechanics of its resolution, its ramiﬁcations transcend national boundaries’.
Atkinson et al. (1987), Lapan and Sandler (1988), Selten (1988), Islam and Shahin (1989), Sandler and Scott (1987), and Scott (1991). The ﬁrst three studies stress game-theoretic aspects, while the latter three studies do not. We focus our remarks around the Lapan and Sandler (1988) study, the most general of these three game-theoretic studies. The question posed by their investigation is whether 20 Todd Sandler and Walter Enders or not a stated policy by which a government precommits never to negotiate with hostage takers will have the intended consequence of keeping terrorists from ever taking hostages.
Enders and Sandler (1999) and Enders et al. (1992) argue that logistically complex events such as skyjackings, large suicide car bombings, and assassinations An economic perspective on transnational terrorism 19 will have longer cycles than less sophisticated events as the attack-counterattack interaction among adversaries takes longer. The theory of Fourier series allows a wide class of functions to be expressed in terms of sine and cosine components. To uncover the underlying cycles in a series, a researcher must regress the detrended values of a series on all frequencies in the interval [1, T /2], where T is the number of observations.
