Why Are Rates of Inflation So Low After large Devaluations

Ariel Burstein, Martin Eichenbaum () and Sergio Rebelo ()

No 3178, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: This Paper studies the behaviour of inflation after nine large post-1990 contractionary devaluations. A salient feature of the data is that inflation is low relative to the rate of devaluation. We argue that distribution costs and substitution away from imports to lower quality local goods can account quantitatively for the post-devaluation behaviour of prices.
