Two Notes on Indeterminacy Problems

Robert Flood (), Peter Garber and Louis O. Scott

No 841, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: In this paper we show, in an example, that the arbitrary behavior which results in an indeterminacy in the time path of a flexible exchange rate and is associated with "badly behaved" speculation has a manifestation under a regime of fixed rates in an indeterminacy in the time path of government holding of international reserves. Thus, to the extent that arbitrariness is characteristic of agents' behavior it is not resolve6 but only masked by the fixing of exchange rates.
