Abstract

By introducing the concept of conditional probability of joint failure (CPJF), and by proposing a new measure for the systemic impact of currency crises, we provide new insights into the different sources of currency crises. We conclude that financial openness helps to diminish the probability of a currency crisis even after controlling for the onset of a banking crisis, that systemic currency crises mainly exist regionally, and that monetary policy geared towards price stability reduces the probability of a currency crisis.
