Abstract

We examine Granger causality among the exchange rates of eight East Asian economies prior to the Asian crisis. We adopt as our general model Engle and Gau’s (1997) “official band†model, and use daily bilateral US dollar exchange rate data during January 1991-July 1997. Our findings provide some empirical support for the presence of systematic relationships that are consistent with the contagious nature of the Asian crisis
