The great exchange rate debate after Argentina

  • Edwards, Sebastian

More specifically, I deal with three issues: (1) I discuss some important aspects of the Argentine experience. (2) I provide a comparative evaluation of economic performance under strict dollarization. And (3), I analyze emerging countries' experiences with flexible exchange rates, including the issue of fear of floating.'
