Pricing-to-Market, the Interest-Rate Rule, and the Exchange Rate

Author

Listed:
  • Maurice Obstfeld

Abstract

Even when the exchange-rate plays no expenditure-switching role, countries may wish to have flexible exchange rates in order to free the domestic interest rate as a stabilization tool. In a setting with nontraded goods, exchange-rate movements may also enhance international risk sharing.
