Abstract [en]

This paper revisits the claim that flexible exchange rates facilitate external adjustment. While previous studies have used exchange rate regime as a proxy for exchange rate flexibility, in this study there is evidence of ARCH effects in exchange rate, and thus GARCH models are employed to estimate volatility. A dynamic panel data model is then specified, and the Arellano-Bond estimator and the Blundell-Bond estimator are employed to estimate the effect of exchange rate flexibility on the speed of adjustment of current account in a panel of 28 emerging and developing economies. There is robust evidence that flexible exchange rates indeed facilitate smoother adjustment of current account imbalances.
