    Abstract

    Although a Currency Board is a simple monetary arrangement, there is a range of important policy issues that must be addressed by the domestic monetary authorities. If one defines policy misalignment as deviation from such policy rule then such mistakes have been associated with either external deficit or contradictory effects on GDP. This paper seeks to evaluate the exchange rate and interest rate misalignment in six Caribbean economies that have adopted Currency Board Arrangements.
