EXCHANGE-RATE-BASED STABILIZATION: A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE STYLIZED FACTS 15Notice that in the cases of inflation and money growth the charts show a transformation, X/(1+X), rather than the actual level of the variable in order to prevent the width of the associated confidence interval from obscuring the changes in the median.

An Exchange-Rate-Based Stabilization. by Santaella Julio A We examine whether Mexico's disinflation experience during fits a widely accepted set of stylized facts of exchange rate-based stabilization (ERBS), and relate it to theories put forward to account for the boom-recession business cycle associated with ERBS.

Abstract. In the late s, the Southern-Cone countries comprising Argentina, Chile and Uruguay launched stabilisation programmes based on a pre-announced path for the exchange rate that exhibited a declining rate of devaluation — the Tablitas.

To address this question, this paper identifies stabilization episodes using criteria that differ from those in previous empirical studies of exchange-rate-based stabilizations. We find that, while some differences can be detected between exchange-rate-based stabilizations and stabilizations where the exchange rate is not the anchor, the.

This paper investigates the effects on production, consumption, and welfare that result from a temporary exchange-rate-based (ERB) stabilization plan. The analysis is based on a dynamic optimizing.

Exchange-Rate-Based Stabilization; A Model of Financial Fragility Interactions between banks and open capital account are investigated as rationalizations for empirical regularities characterizing disinflation programs anchored by the exchange rate.

This paper compares the experience with exchange-rate–based stabilization (ERBS) of four Western European countries with that of high-inflation developing countries. Abstract Exchange-rate-based stabilization is designed to reduce inflation by using the exchange rate as the main nominal anchor.

This does not necessarily mean a fixed exchange rate. A crawling peg with a low rate of depreciation or a pre-announced gradual Cited by: 3. In response to high and chronic inflation, countries have adopted different stabilization policies.

However, the extent to which these stabilization programs were designed for political motives is not clear. Since exchange-rate-based stabilizations (ERBS) create an initial consumption boom followed by a contraction, whereas money-based stabilizations (MBS) generate a.

Vegh, Exchange rate-based stabilization plans are based on purchasing power parity: P, = eP', (2) where e is the exchange rate and P and P* stand for domestic and foreign prices, respectively. By fixing or managing the exchange rate (e), policy makers hope to map the evolution of the domestic inflation rate by pegging it to the inflation rate by: Exchange-rate-based stabilization is designed to reduce inflation by using the exchange rate as the main nominal anchor.

This paper studies the dynamics of inconsistent exchange rate-based stabilization policy —a policy that fixes the exchange rate without an underlying fiscal adjustment to ensure that the exchange rate policy is sustainable in the long run—in a model where the perception that exchange rate policy temporarily leads to an initial expansion in consumption that generates Cited by: The literature on the exchange-rate-based stabilization has focused almost exclusively in Latin America.

Many other countries however, such as Egypt. If the fiscal authority is impatient, a money-based stabilization provides more fiscal discipline and higher welfare for the representative agent than does an exchange rate-based stabilization.

Authors Based on this the consequences for union cohesion and the scope for policy coordination are discussed. Since the analytical framework is defined by a three country model many results from the traditional policy coordination. In exchange rate-based stabilization programs, credibility often follows a distinct time pattern.

We examine whether Mexico’s disinflation experience during fits the widely accepted set of stylized facts of exchange-ratebased stabilization (ERBS) on inflation, the boom-recession business cycle, and the external sector.

A cursory look at Mexican data shows that the experience fits quite closely the stylized facts of ERBS. This book analyzes key international monetary issues from a macro-foundations perspective. It proposes novel frameworks to interpret macroeconomic and financial linkages for globally integrated economies, examining global imbalances, exchange rates, interest rates, international capital flows, inflation, foreign and public debt.

These so-called exchange rate-based stabilization (ERBS) plans have been associated with two empirical regularities. 1 First, they generate a boom–recession cycle in economic activity. Consumption and output expand in the early stages of the programs, but recessions occur at the later stages of failed and successful stabilizations alike.
