Purchasing Power Parity and the Chinese Yuan
AbstractResults from unit root tests applied to the bilateral China - US real exchange rate do not support purchasing power parity between the two countries. However, tests of the real equivalent exchange rate for the Chinese yuan versus a traded-weighted basket of currencies support purchasing power parity. Due to severe non-normality, critical values for tests of the real equivalent exchange rate are obtained from the wild bootstrap.
