Abstract

This article presents evidence on mean reversion in industrial countries' real exchange rates in a setup that accounts naturally for cross-sectional dependence, is invariant to the benchmark currency and actually tests for the null of interest, i.e. purchasing power parity. Our results are based on the Kwiatkowski et al. (1992) test for the stationarity null generalized in a multivariate random walk plus noise model by Nyblom and Harvey (2000).
