Exchange Rate Flexibility, Volatility, and Domestic and Foreign Direct Investment
AbstractThe impact of exchange rate regimes on domestic and foreign investment in the presence of a short-run Phillips curve is investigated. Producers may diversify internationally to increase the flexibility of production, thereby diversifying country-specific productivity and monetary shocks. Aggregate investment is shown to be higher under a fixed exchange rate than under a flexible exchange rate for both productivity and monetary shocks. Welfare is not, however, necessarily higher under either regime: a flexible exchange rate stabilizes employment in the presence of real shocks at the cost of reduced expected GNP and investment.
