The Tobin Tax in a Continuous-time Non-linear Dynamic Model of the Exchange rate

Author

  • Giancarlo Gandolfo

Abstract

Starting from a new continuous-time non-linear dynamic model of the exchange rate, we formally show that the introduction of a Tobin tax reduces speculators’ prot and inuences the dynamics of the system making it more stable and less prone to chaotic motion.
