Abstract

This paper aims at evaluating the performance of the so called ?hard currency policy? as an anti-inflationary weapon. The analysis takes place in the context of the Greek economy on the basis of a five-equation model including the behaviour of wages, import and export prices, the consumer price index as well as the GDP. The Simulation results indicate that the hard drachma policy is not adequate by itself as an inflation fighting device, unless it is accompanied by other anti-inflationary policies such as fiscal or incomes policy.
