Abstract

This paper estimates long-run effects of a collective exchange rate adjustment on multilateral exports from China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The findings show that a 1 percent generalized appreciation of all East Asian exchange rates would reduce East Asian exports by about 3 percent.

Keywords: Global imbalance, exchange rate appreciation, collective adjustment, production networks, East Asia
