Who Needs Bands? Exchange Rate Policy Before EMU
No 1188, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers
Two issues are discussed. The first is which countries might benefit from entry into EMU before the millennium. Germany and her immediate neighbours appear the most likely to gain; our knowledge is too uncertain to say whether all, some, or no countries would reap net economic benefits, however. The second issue is how to avoid exchange rate instability in the transition to EMU. Experience from earlier exchange rate regimes suggests that an early announcement of the parities at which different currencies would enter EMU could reduce such instability if governments were willing to accept the required limitations on domestic policies.
