We employ vector autoregression and cointegration estimation to examine the impact of net capital inflows on real exchange rates, output and real interest rates in several East Asian and Latin American economies during the 1990s. We find that increases in net capital inflows leads to appreciations of the real exchange rates in all the countries but have no impact on real output except for Thailand.
