Abstract

D. Corbae and S. Ouliaris (1991) examined Australia's long-run real exchange rate and concluded that, because the data follow a random walk, purchasing power parity does not hold as a long-run equilibrium relation. The authors reexamine their data by calculating nonparametric measures of persistence and estimating fractionally integrated ARMA models. They find that shocks to the real exchange rate have a finite life. This result is consistent with long-run purchasing power parity. Copyright 1998 by The Economic Society of Australia.
