Just how undervalued is the Chinese renminbi?
() and Jörg Rahn
Abstract: Given that the value of China’s currency has been hot
topic recently, this paper explores the equilibrium levels of China’s real
and nominal exchange rates. Employing a Johansen cointegration framework,
we focus on the behavioral equilibrium exchange rate (BEER) and permanent
equilibrium exchange rate (PEER) models. Our results suggest that, while
the renminbi is somewhat undervalued against the dollar, the misalignment
is not nearly as exaggerated as many popular claims.
