Is The Real Effective Exchange Rate Biased Against the PPP Hypothesis?

Economics Bulletin, 2014, vol. 34, issue 1, 395-399

Abstract: We show that the use of the real effective exchange rate to test for purchasing power parity, as in Astorga (2012) and other studies, is subject to a problem that biases tests against finding evidence of PPP. The problem is illustrated using Astorga´s data on six Latin American countries.
