Fixed versus Flexible Exchange Rates: Evidence from Developing Countries
AbstractThis paper empirically investigates Mundell's (1961) formalisation that in a small open economy flexible exchange rates act as a `shock absorber'. The role of a world real interest rate shock in driving output, trade imbalances and real exchange rate fluctuations under different exchange rate regimes is empirically investigated in a Panel VAR, which utilises economic theory for identification.
