Exchange rate policy under sovereign default risk

Andreas Schabert ()

Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 112, issue 2, 179-181

Abstract: We examine monetary policy options for a small open economy where sovereign default might occur due to intertemporal insolvency. Under interest rate policy and floating exchange rates the equilibrium is indetermined. Under a fixed exchange rate the equilibrium is uniquely determined and independent of sovereign default.
