In response to a negative terms-of-trade shock, countries with fixed regimes experience large and significant declines in real GDP, and the real exchange rate depreciates slowly and by means of a fall in prices. In response to a negative terms-of-trade shock, countries with fixed regimes experience large and significant declines in real GDP, and the real exchange rate depreciates slowly and by means of a fall in prices. Countries with more flexible regimes, by contrast, tend to have small real GDP losses and immediate large real depreciations. I use a post-Bretton Woods sample (1973-96) of seventy-five developing countries to assess whether the responses of real GDP, real exchange rates, and prices to terms-of-trade shocks differ systematically across exchange rate regimes. I find that responses are significantly different across regimes in a way that supports Friedman’s hypothesis. Choice of exchange rate regimes for developing countries (English) Abstract. The choice of an appropriate exchange rate regime for developing countries has been at the center of the debate in international finance for a long time. High volatility of the exchange rate in the floating regimes gives rise to a phenomenon called "fear of floating". According to recent studies, few developing countries that claim to be implementing a floating exchange rate policy, do in fact allow their exchange rate to float (Calvo and Reinhart 2000a and 200b). • Many developing countries follow intermediate exchange rate regimes. • The theoretical rationale for the corners hypothesis never was clear. The Corners Hypothesis • The hypothesis: “ountries are, or should be, abandoning intermediate regimes like target zones and moving to either one corner or the other: rigid peg or free float. In response to a negative terms-of-trade shock, countries with fixed regimes experience large and significant declines in real GDP, and the real exchange rate depreciates slowly and by means of a fall in prices. Countries with more flexible regimes, by contrast, tend to have small real GDP losses and immediate large real depreciations.
