Testing the purchasing power parity in China

Olivier Darné and Jean-François Hoarau ()

No 2006-18, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: In this paper we examine whether purchasing power parity holds in the long run in China for the period 1970:1 to 2006:5 from an alternative method relative to the previous studies. We underlined the effects of large, but infrequent shocks due to changes of Chinese exchange policy (undertaken since the China's foreign exchange reform) on the real exchange rate, using outlier methodology. We also show that there is no endency to the purchasing power parity in China to hold in the long run during this period.
