Real exchange rate volatility, terms-of-trade shocks, and financial integration in primary-commodity exporting economies

Author

Listed:
  • Al-Abri, Almukhtar

Abstract

Using a panel of 53 primary-commodity exporting countries, we show that greater international financial integration reduces the impact of terms-of-trade shocks on real exchange rate volatility. This reduction is larger when we define financial integration as foreign direct investment.
