Choice and Performance of Exchange Rate Regimes in Developing Countries: The Case of Chile
Although an optimal exchange rate regime is dependent on country’s characteristics, intermediate regimes, especially the Managed Floating Plus (MFP) regime and Basket, Band and Crawling Peg (BBC) regime, seem to be viable options for developing countries. This work aims to analyze the issue of exchange rate regime choice and macroeconomic performance in developing countries, particularly in Chile. The analysis of exchange rate volatility, foreign exchange reserves volatility, inflation rate variation and export growth rate seems to prove that the adoption of the crawling band regime was an effective option as a successful transition to a more flexible exchange rate regime.
