Terms of Trade and Current Account Dynamics: A Methodological Critique
AbstractThis paper suggests that the recent intertemporal studies concerning the implications of terms-of-trade deterioration on the current account of a small open economy may suffer from significant methodological deficiencies. The study demonstrates that, while the assumption of a small open economy represents a legitimate modeling simplification, the analysis of the impact of perturbation of the terms of trade on the current account of this small open economy is methodologically erroneous. In particular, the paper demonstrates that a given pattern of terms-of-trade deterioration may be associated with opposing evolutionary patterns of the current account of this small economy.
