Abstract

Traditionally, gold and currency reserves are seen as one of the key elements in protecting the economy from external shocks and their accumulation is largely perceived as an insurance against the risk of these negative (in terms of the effect on the economy) shocks occurring. Optimization of reserves is of great economic importance, since their understatement worsens a country’s solvency on the world market and limits the regulatory capabilities of the state while the opposite situation leads to the freezing of a significant part of the national wealth for a long period, which means missing the potential of its possible investment (opportunity cost) Our study tries to systemize existing evidence on the main determinants of international reserves and ascertain the significance of their effect.
