MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This appendix presents an extended explanation for our finding of mean reversion of the real exchange rate to a shifting mean using monthly data for Mexico, 1969-2010. Because such shifts coincide with trade liberalization in Mexico, we conclude that changes in the tradable/nontradable goods composition of the price index used in the empirical estimations caused the mean shifts.
