It is widely believed that changes in exchange rates have important implications for financial decision-making and for the profitability of firms. One of the central motivations for the creation of the euro was to eliminate exchange rate risk to enable European firms to operate free from the uncertainties of changes in relative prices
resulting from exchange rate movements. At the macro level, there is evidence that the creation of such currency unions results in a dramatic increase in bilateral trade (Frankel and Rose, 2002)....
TWO ESSAYS IN INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS: AN EMPIRICAL APPROACH TO PURCHASING POWER PARITY AND THE MONETARY MODEL OF EXCHANGE RATE DETERMINATION I adopt a different strategy: I compare housing markets that differ in the strength of
the residential location-school assignment link, and I develop simple reduced-form
implications of parental valuations for the across-school distribution of student
characteristics and educational outcomes as a function of the strength of this link.
On Fiscal Discipline and the Choice of Exchange Rate Regine This result conflicts with a well-known recent result from Hoxby (2000a), who
argues that metropolitan areas with less centralized educational governance, and therefore
more competition among local school districts, produce better student outcomes at lower
cost. In Chapter Two, I attempt to get to the bottom of the discrepancy. I reanalyze a
portion of Hoxbys data, and find reason to suspect the validity of her conclusions.
ESSAYS ON THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN FOREIGN DIRECT IN VESTMENT, INTERNATIONAL TRADE, AND EXCHANGE RATE VOLATILITY My analysis of parental choices focuses on the possibility that parents may choose
schools partly on the basis of the peer group offered. Although existing research does not
conclusively establish the causal contribution of peer group characteristics to student
outcomes (see, e.g., Coleman et al.
Chapter 6 describe the exchange rate system used by various governments, describe the development and implications of a single European currency, explain how governments can use direct intervention to influence exchange rates, explain how government intervention in the foreign exchange market can affect economic conditions.

This chapter explain the purchasing power parity (PPP) theory and its implications for exchange rate changes, explain the International Fisher effect (IFE) theory and its implications for exchange rate changes, compare the PPP theory, the IFE theory, and the theory of interest rate parity (IRP), which was introduced in the previous chapter.

this paper analyzes the panel data of bi-weekly surveys, conducted by the japan center for international finance, on the yen dollar exchange rate expectations of forty—four institutions for two years. there are three major findings in this paper. first, market participants are found to be heterogeneous. there are significant "individual effects" in their expectation institutions are found to violate the formation.

This version includes amendments resulting from IFRSs issued up to 31 December 2008. IAS 21 The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates was issued by the International Accounting Standards Committee in December 1993. It replaced IAS 21 Accounting for the Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates (issued in July 1983).

ABSTRACT Vietnam’s foreign exchange (forex) market has remained relatively poorly developed despite more than two decades of general reform throughout the economy. This paper adopts a microstructure approach to the analysis of the root-causes underlying the operational deficiencies of this market. The analysis suggests that the authorities have tended to follow a de facto adjustable peg exchange rate regime which, in turn, has acted as a retardant to the development of the country’s forex market. Consequently, market signals have become increasingly non-transparent.
Stabilization Programs, Monetary Policy and Exchange Rate Movements in Emerging Markets Economies I use a unique data set consisting of observations on more than 300,000
metropolitan SAT takers from the 1994 cohort, matched to the high schools that students
attended. The size of this sample permits accurate estimation of both peer quality and
average performance for the great majority of high schools in each of 177 metropolitan
housing markets. I find no evidence that the association between peer group and student
performance is stronger in high-choice than in low-choice markets....
