Foreign exchange reserves in a credit constrained economy

Contents:

Author Info

  • Kurma? Akdogan

Abstract

We discuss the role of foreign exchange reserves as precautionary savings under an imperfect market framework due to the presence of endogenously determined borrowing constraints. We show that cost of holding reserves is higher in borrowin constrained economies than unconstrained ones as a result of the leverage effect of the debt.
