Exchange rate systems and linkages in the pacific basin
This paper analyzes the exchange rate systems of 10 Pacific Basin economies and linkages of their currencies with the major currencies. The recent advances in time series analysis, including unit root tests and cointegration tests, are utilized for this purpose. The results suggest that while many Pacific Basin developing economies are inclined to have a peg or crawling peg system and peg their currencies primarily to the U.S. dollar, the influence of the Japanese yen in this region is also strong, especially on the exchange rates of the Asian newly industrializing economies. For Australia and New Zealand, their exchange rates move in tandem. Copyright International Atlantic Economic Society 1998
