Optimal Exchange Rate Policy: The Case of Iceland
AbstractThis paper analysis the appropriate exchange rate arrangement for Iceland, given its structural characteristics, on the one hand, and the need for a credible nominal anchor for monetary policy, on the other. It also discusses the current regime of a currency peg, its rationale, its success in terms of achieving its goals, and how the apparent conflict between the exchange rate arrangement suggested by the structural characteristics of the economy and the arrangement actually chosen, has been resolved. Finally, the paper provides an assessment of alternative future exchange rate regimes.
