Another Look at Exhange Rate and Monetary Regime Options for Latin America
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to comment on the paper by Berg et. al. on exchange rate and monetary regime options for Latin America. The purpose of Berg et. al. paper is to evaluate the relative merits of the two exchange rate regimes to which most Latin American countries are converging today: hard pegs (dollarization and currency board) and floating exchange rate regimes. They also assess if the countries that float are able to use monetary policy to pursue domestic ends. This is a very interesting paper on a very important and practical topic: the choice of exchange rate regime and monetary policy in emerging markets.
