Testing the Canonical Model of Exchange Rates with Unobservable Fundamentals
AbstractIn this paper, the authors test the asset market approach or canonical model of exchange rates. They treat exchange rate fundamentals as unobservable. The empirical results do not reject the canonical model and, therefore, the embedded rational expectations assumption, in sharp contrast with previous empirical evidence. The authors also find evidence of feedback from the exchange rate to fundamentals, which is normally omitted in the theoretical literature.
