''How do natural disasters impact the exchange rate: an investigation through small island developing states (SIDS)?''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.3 )
We investigate the response of the real effective exchange rate to tropical cyclones in small island developing states. Our results show that under flexible exchange rate regimes there is a real exchange appreciation up to two months after the storm. In contrast, a fixed exchange rate almost completely buffer an appreciation.
Keywords: Exchange rate regime, real effective exchange rate, natural disasters, small island developing states.
