Le Taux de Change Réel et les Performances macroéconomiques: Une Application à Trois Pays de l’UEMOA
[Real Exchange Rate and Macroeconomic Performances: Evidence from three countries of WAEMU]
AbstractIn this paper, it is necessary to establish the degree of surevaluation and volatility of real exchange rate and measure the impact of these distortions in the macroeconomic performance of the WAEMU countries. According to our analysis it appears that the overvaluation and volatility of the TCR are among the factors that threaten economic growth in these countries. Directly or indirectly overvaluation and instability of TCR negatively affect growth in real GDP per capita.
