Abstract

International monetary system made by agreement in Bretton – Woods, is widely known to be the system of fixed exchange rates with allowed +/- 1% band of oscillation. As such, it is viewed as the period of exchange rates stability. However, our analysis of Reinhart – Rogoff’s (2004) database of exchange rates regimes shows, that most countries chose far more flexible exchange rates’ regimes. By the same token, the de – facto exchange rates varied very often and substantially from the officially declared ones.
