[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Policymakers use a fixed exchange rate regime to signal their commitment to low inflation and to exchange rate stability. Increasing economic integration and the rise of democratic institutions make it more difficult for policymakers to maintain the credibility of this commitment gbp usd exchange rate chart. We use binary probit (with a variety of corrections for autocorrelated and heteroscedastic disturbances) to test hypotheses relating democratic institutions to exchange rate regime choice on a sample of 76 developing countries over the period 1973–1994 binary chart. The empirical analysis indicates that domestic political preferences—as measured by the structure of domestic political institutions and the fractionalization of the party system—influence exchange rate regime choice. We find that floating exchange rate regimes are more likely in democratic than in nondemocratic polities and that democratic politieswith majoritarian electoral systems are more likely to fix their exchange rates than those with systems of proportional representation.


[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper reviews the evolution of China’s real effective exchange rate between 1980 and 2002, and uses a structural vector autoregression model to study the relative importance of different types of macroeconomic shocks for fluctuations in the real exchange rate binary search algorithm. The structural decomposition shows that relative real demand and supply shocks account for most of the variations in real exchange rate changes during the estimation period. The paper also finds that supply shocks are as important as nominal shocks in accounting for real exchange rate fluctuations, in contrast with other studies that show that, in industrial countries, nominal shocks are more important in explaining real exchange rate fluctuations.

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: One of the striking characteristics of the recent currency crises in East Asia is the sharp reductions in output that followed depreciations rmb to usd exchange rate history. This paper draws on an earlier literature on contractionary depreciations to motivate an empirical model of the relationship between exchange rate and output fluctuations in a panel of six East Asian economies. There is evidence of a negative relationship between economic activity and the real exchange rate in East Asia decimal fraction to binary. Informal examination of output fluctuations around episodes of sharp depreciation over the 1975-1996 period conveys the impression that such episodes are associated with modest expansion and contraction cycles, with output above trend before a sharp depreciation episode and below trend after it. The cyclical pattern is accentuated when the sharp depreciation episode occurs during a banking crisis. The very steep output declines that followed the 1997 sharp depreciation episodes appear to reflect a high concentration of banking crises of unprecedented severity usd mxn forecast. However, explicitly accounting for sharp depreciation episodes or banking crises does not add to the explanatory power of the benchmark model over the period 1975-1996.

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper summarizes the results of CASE’s research project on ‘Strategies for Joining the EMU’ and proposes policy recommendations both for new member states (on how to manage their accession to the Eurozone) and for the European Commission, ECB and old member states (on how to manage and absorb EMU enlargement in an optimal way). Both the economic and the political economy arguments point to fast EMU accession of NMS usd to sgd converter. Looking at the ‘classical’ optimum currency area criteria, i.e. trade integration, co-movement of business cycles and actual factor mobility, NMS’ record is not worse, on average, than that of the current Eurozone members, and should further improve before Eurozone entry, decreasing risk of their exposure to idiosyncratic shocks. After joining the EMU, the common currency should help NMS to develop additional intra-EMU trade links, further synchronize business cycle and increase factor mobility php to usd conversion. Both theoretical arguments and empirical experience demonstrates that so-called real convergence accompanies nominal convergence, and that there is synergy rather than a trade-off between the two. The credibility of the Euro and price stability in the Eurozone will not be threatened by fast EMU Enlargement famous quotes from movies. Neither can the accession of fast growing NMS create an additional ‘recessionary’ impact on slow growing incumbent members new funny jokes in urdu 2016. The biggest challenge for the common currency in the medium to long run may come from widespread breaches of EU fiscal rules. So the incumbents should replace their ‘don’t rush’ advice by active encouragement of NMS to proceed with fast nominal convergence in order to meet the Maastricht criteria and join the EMU as quickly as possible.
