A Single Currency for Pacific Island Countries: An SVAR Analysis
AbstractInterest in monetary integration of 14 Pacific island countries was aroused in 2003 by an Australian Senate Committee’s suggestion for adoption of the Australian dollar as common currency towards deeper regional integration. A common currency entails a single set of economic, monetary, financial and fiscal policies to influence the balance of payments of the region. Such a single set of policies can be justified only when all the prospective member countries face a similar pattern of shocks. this paper develops a structural VAr model with which to examine whether there exists a high degree of symmetry in shocks. The empirical findings fail to support the case for a currency union.
