Abstract

The paper develops a short-run model of a small open financially repressed economy characterized by unorganized money markets, intermediate good imports, capital mobility and flexible exchange rates. The analysis shows that financial liberalization, in the form of increased rate of interest on deposits and tight monetary policy causes deflation for an economy with high degree of capital mobility. However, for economies with low degree of capital mobility, the possibility of stagflation cannot be ruled out. The paper recommends financial liberalization in the form of lower reserve requirements for economies with restricted transactions in the capital account.
