NOTES 1. There is evidence that any predictable pattern in stock prices, the basis of chartism, disappears after it has been published in the finance literature (Malkiel 2003). Markets are efficient after all. There is little reason to believe that things are different for exchange rates. 2. Instead of tailor-made forward purchases or sales of foreign exchange, standardised transactions on futures markets are possible. On 16 May 1972, the world’s first futures market in international currencies officially opened for business, the IMM or International Monetary Market, an offshoot of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (Steinherr 1998, p.

As there are no net capital movements and the current account, including payments of capital income, is neglected, no international payments have to be made. The rate of exchange is not the price at which foreign currency is bought and sold; it is nothing but a numeraire linking the domestic and foreign-currency prices of foreign bonds. This problem disappears if we not only allow domestic agents to hold foreign debt but also foreign agents to hold domestic debt. The volume of foreign debt held by domestic agents need no longer be constant in that case, even if there are no net capital inflows or outflows: the volume of foreign debt held by domestic agents can increase if they succeed in selling domestic debt to foreign agents and decrease if they buy back domestic debt.

If monetary-policy changes do not immediately affect prices we have another case of sticky prices. 3 Dornbusch’s Sticky-Price Monetary Model Dornbusch’s exchange-rate dynamics model (Dornbusch 1976, 1980, ch. 11; Bilson 1979) differs from the flexprice monetary model in that prices do not adjust immediately after a shock. The quantity theory applies only in the longer term. Consequently, changes in the money supply first exert a Keynesian liquidity effect affecting the rate of interest, whereas in the equilibrium exchange-rate model they immediately feed into higher or lower prices with the interest rate remaining constant (or, if we analyse changes in the rate of growth of the money supply, in higher or lower inflation and in Fisherian interest-rate adjustments).
