Der gleichgewichtige Frankenkurs gegenüber Deutschland

Die starke Aufwertung des Schweizer Frankens veranlasste die Schweizerische Nationalbank (SNB), verschiedene Massnahmen zu ergreifen. In diesem Beitrag soll das Ausmass dieser «massiven Überbewertung» gegenüber dem wichtigsten Handelspartner der Schweiz, d.h. Deutschland, geschätzt werden. Hierfür werden mit Hilfe von zeitvariierenden vektorautoregressiven Modellen gleichgewichtige Wechselkurse seit 1981 geschätzt. Dieser Ansatz erlaubt es, Wechsel - wirkungen zwischen Wechselkurs und anderen ökonomischen Variablen auf eine sehr flexible Art zu berücksichtigen. Aus den Ergebnissen werden Abweichungen von gleichgewichtigen Wechselkursen berechnet, um Episoden der Über- oder Unterbewertung zu quantifizieren. Die Ergebnisse deuten darauf hin, dass der Schweizer Franken Mitte 2011 gegenüber Deutschland zwischen 8 und 15% überbewertet war. Dieser Überbewertung war eine deutliche Unterbewertung vorausgegangen.
