How New Zealand adjusts to macroeconomic shocks: implications for joining a currency area
Sharon McCaw and
Christopher McDermott ()
Reserve Bank of New Zealand Bulletin, 2000, vol. 63, No 1
In this article we consider how the New Zealand economy might adjust to shocks if it were a member of a currency union. In a currency union the exchange rate can no longer act as a mechanism of adjustment. Consequently, we consider the role of alternative adjustment mechanisms, such as migration, price and wage flexibility, and fiscal adjustment.
