Abstract

The paper presents empirical estimations of the equilibrium exchange rate of the Estonian kroon. The behavioural equilibrium exchange rate (BEER) approach is used to analyse the dynamics of the real effective exchange rate in the time period from 1995 to 2002. The estimates range from a 15% undervaluation to a small overvaluation of the kroon in the beginning of the period and indicate a position close to equilibrium in 2002.
