Real Exchange Rates and Macroeconomics: A Selective Survey
This paper discusses real exchange rate issues of industrial and developing countries. For real exchange rates among the key industrial countries, the author asks what is the best conceptual framework. To shed light on this questions, he looks at alternative theoretical approaches and at empirical evidence on the relations among interest rates, expectations, and depreciation. The discussion of developing countries' real exchange rates focuses on the link between real exchange rates, real wages, and the profitability of capital. The model highlights the discrepancy between the mobility of capital (including, in the long run, physical capital) and the immobility of labor.
