On the consumption real exchange rate anomaly
Christoph Thoenissen () and
No 533, 2004 Meeting Papers from Society for Economic Dynamics
This paper addresses the Backus-Smith puzzle regarding the absence of a link between the real exchange rate and relative consumption, in a simple dynamic general equilibrium open economy model. Following Backus and Smith (1993), we show that a very simple form of market incompleteness combined with wealth effects is sufficient in generating the observed cross-correlation. A key role is played by investment dynamics and the steady-state net foreign asset position
