What Should the Weights of the Three Major Currencies be in a Common Currency Basket in East Asia?
Kentaro Kawasaki and
Asian Economic Journal, 2006, vol. 20, issue 1, 75-94
We consider what type of regional common currency should be introduced in East Asia in the future. The common currency basket is, in itself, more desirable as an anchor currency. In this paper we define two types of currency basket and investigate the long‐term sustainability of adopting a common currency basket in East Asia. From our empirical results, a larger weight (but less than 100 percent) for the US dollar in the common currency basket tends to make bilateral exchange rates among East Asian countries stable in the long run.
