Long Run Real Exchange Rates - A Cointegration Analysis
Abstract: Long run purchasing power is tested on 16 OECD countries
using data from 1960 to 1994, PPP is rejected for some countries (Canada,
Japan, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Spain) and not rejected for other
(Sweden, France, Holland and the United Kingdom). For the latter countries,
impulse response functions show that half of a disturbance tot the
equilibrium real exchange rate disapperars within three years. The method
used is Johansen's maximum likelihood approach to cointegration.
Simulations are used to obtain empirical critical values of the tests.
