Fixed versus Flexible Exchange Rates: Evidence from Developing Countries

Mathias Hoffmann ()

No 109, Royal Economic Society Annual Conference 2003 from Royal Economic Society

Abstract: This paper empirically investigates Mundell's (1961) formalisation that in a small open economy flexible exchange rates act as a `shock absorber'. The role of a world real interest rate shock in driving output, trade imbalances and real exchange rate fluctuations under different exchange rate regimes is empirically investigated in a Panel VAR, which utilises economic theory for identification.
