  • Crow, J.

Abstract

The authors starts by giving his interpretation of the dollar's slide and to what extent, if any, this has posed a policy issue. Against that background, he moves on to discuss possible exchange rate regimes for Canada more generally -focussing on what it takes to make them work. His basic thesis is that we may have a floating loony but we don't have loony floating. In fact, what we are doing, anf getting, is rather sensible in all circumstances.
