Department of Economics Discussion Paper, University of Kent 06,03
This paper tests the traditional monetary model of exchange rates for a sample of industrialized and emerging market economies by making use of panel techniques that allow for a high degree of heterogeneity across countries. The results demonstrated partial support for the monetary model for industrialised market economies but not for emerging ones. This constitutes a puzzle as it would expect countries with greater monetary instability to show a stronger association between exchange rates and monetary fundamentals.
