Inconsistency and over-determination in balance-of-payments-constrained growth models: a note

José Luís Oreiro ()

Review of Keynesian Economics, 2016, vol. 4, issue 2, 193-200

Abstract: The objective of this short note is to re-evaluate the solution given by Palley (2002) for the inconsistency problem in BoP-constrained growth models. I show that once we distinguish the concepts of natural and warranted rates of growth that over-determination problem appears again, requiring the introduction of the level of real exchange rate in the formal structure of BoP models in order to be solved.
