The Political Economics Side of the J-Curve
Abstract: About 20 years ago, van der Ploeg analyzed the implications of the J-curve effect for the political business cycle in a small open economy (van der Ploeg, 1989a). It was then shown that a sudden jump in the exchange rates on the election day should be observed if the government, in order to maximize its popularity, explores a J-curve effect. As a way of celebrating this work, a simulation study is presented in this paper, which confirms the exchange rate overvaluation result a la van der Ploeg.
