Exchange Rate Regimes and Business Cycle Properties: Some Stylized Facts
AbstractThis paper aims at measuring the robustness of Real Business Cycle international stylized facts across exchange rate regimes. I thus investigate th e impact of the Bretton Woods System and the ERM on the business cycle regularities. Thanks to bootstrap techniques, I measure the accuracy of the statistics. While exchange rate variability is sensitive to the nature of the exchange rate regime, the volatility of macroeconomic fundamentals does not differ across exchange rate regimes. Moreover, there is evidence that fixed-rates enhance international comovement of ouput, consumption and investment.
