Foreign Aid Inflows And The Real Exchange Rate In The Cfa Franc Zone
This paper presents an empirical analysis of the relationship between foreign aid inflows and the real exchange rate in the countries of the CFA Franc zone. Using panel data analysis we find that foreign aid inflows are associated with the appreciation of the real exchange rate in the CFA countries between 1980 and 2000. However, our results also suggest that the potential "Dutch Disease" effects associated with these inflows could be offset if appropriate policies are implemented.
