Nominal Exchange Rates and Net Foreign Assets' Dynamics: the Stabilization Role of Valuation Effects
Sara Eugeni ()
No 2017_09, Working Papers from Durham University Business School
This paper proposes a theory of nominal exchange rate determination to shed light on its role in countries’ portfolio choices and its impact on the dynamics of net foreign assets through valuation effects. The model can rationalize the behavior of the US external position over the past 20 years, which has been characterized by persistent current account deficits and stabilizing valuation effects, as a consequence of the increase in emerging market countries’ share of world GDP. We also show quantitatively that the valuation channel is a key component of the process of external adjustment, consistently with the empirical literature.
