Abstract

This study examines for period going from 2002 to 2007 in the case of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the existence of a degree of pass through between the rate of exchange and inflation. The model VAR was chooses in order to clarify the relation which exists between the reactions of the general index of the price the consumer domestic, of the price index of the gasoline following the innovations of the rate of exchange. The results of the empirical analysis show that the innovations on the rate of exchange (DE) involve a rapid answer on the consumer price index (IPC) and the price index of gasoline (IPP). This is explained by the fact, as announces Krugman(2006) that in "an inflationary economy, it is difficult to simply modify the rate of real exchange by changing the rate of nominal exchange, insofar as the rise of the request which results from it quickly causes an interior inflation and thus a rise of the domestic prices".
