dc.description.abstractThe paper reviews exchange rate options for Mercosur countries. We start from theobservation that most of the countries in the region have a longstanding tendency toadopt fixed exchange rates, and ask how such a system could best be designed. TheArgentine crisis has demonstrated that unilateral currency pegs imply the risk of seriousmisalignments with other trading partners and subsequent realignments. The standardbasket peg is not a solution because of its limited transparency and credibility. Wetherefore discuss a proposal to create dual currency boards that could be a workablesolution for the Mercosur countries.en_US
