Does exchange rate volatility hinder export flows for South American countries?



This article examines the influence of exchange rate volatility on exports for three South American countries (Bolivia, Colombia and Guyana) in the period January 1973 to February 2010. Using a new measure of volatility, a significant negative relationship is found between aggregate exports and volatility.
