Abstract

Este relatório visa o estudo de bandas de câmbio em seus diferentes aspectos. Na primeira parte está apresentada uma versão simplificada, não matemática, da teoria das bandas de câmbio e de suas experiências nos diversos países que a adotaram. A segunda parte contém um estudo mais completo da teoria das bandas de câmbio, inclusive com alguns resultados novos no que diz respeito ao caso de bandas múltiplas. Analisamos neste caso a possibilidade de defesa contra ataques especulativos como função do nível de reservas. A terceira e quarta parte têm como objetivo o estudo preliminar do caso brasileiro. Começamos na terceira parte por um estudo empírico do Risco Brasil, isto é, da diferença entre as taxas de juros interna e externa. Este é um ponto importante quando se tem como objetivo algum tipo de regime cambial mais flexível do que atualmente se tem no Brasil. Finalmente, na última parte, fazemos algumas considerações sobre como um regime de bandas cambiais poderia ser útil durante um programa de estabilização no Brasil. Aqui apresentamos ideias preliminares sobre o assunto que poderiam ser desenvolvidas com mais precisão em uma possível prorrogação do convênio. Outras possibilidades de aplicações da teoria de bandas de câmbio ao Brasil, como um sistema de câmbio multilateral no contexto do MERCOSUL, não são tratadas neste estudo.
