Abstract

In 1992, the political dissolution of Czechoslovakia highlighted the problem of designing monetary disintegration for two interdependent republics. In this study, the exchange-rate system of the two newly established currencies that was an analogy to the currency union was described. The newly gained potential of independence in monetary and exchange-rate policies was analyzed in this context. The study assessed costs and benefits of the gradual approach to monetary disintegration that was applied in the Czech-Slovak case. The analysis suggested that the careful design with two intermediate stages was superior to a longer maintaining of a common currency or a sudden monetary disintegration.
