    A tale of two cities revisited : pass-through in Hong Kong and Singapore by Rajan, Ramkishen S. , Ghosh, Amit

    This paper compares the extent of exchange rate pass-through at the aggregate level into CPI and import prices in Singapore and Hong Kong for the period 1980 to 2005. A priori one might expect that these two economies which have relatively small markets and are highly open with high degree of dependence on foreign goods for domestic consumption, will be faced with relatively high exchange rate pass-through. Results suggest that exchange rate pass-through in Hong Kong is higher than in Singapore. The paper further examines whether pass-through has changed over time in the two economies.

    A selective survey of exchange rate pass-through in Asia: what does the literature tell us? by Rajan, Ramkishen S. , Ghosh, Amit

    Exchange rate pass-through (ERPT) is broadly defined as the percentage change in domestic prices in the importing nation’s currency due to a one percent change in the exchange rate between the trade partners. While the bulk of the literature to date on ERPT has focused on the US and other industrial countries, this paper examines the analytical and empirical literature on ERPT with particular reference to Asia. It is generally believed that since Asian economies are highly trade-dependent they are potentially susceptible to ERPT into domestic inflation. Particular attention is paid to production sharing -- which is a key characteristic of trade in Asia -- and its consequent implications for ERPT.

    Macroeconomic determinants of exchange rate pass-through in India by Rajan, Ramkishen S. , Ghosh, Amit

    This paper examines the evolution of exchange rate pass-through (ERPT)into India’s consumer price index (CPI) at the aggregate level over the period 1980Q1-2006Q4. It also investigates whether the extent of exchange rate pass-through is impacted by common macro fundamentals such as inflation and exchange rate volatility. Finally, the paper also tests for possible asymmetries of ERPT during periods of depreciation versus appreciation.
