2. Purchasing Power Parity Theory

A Theory of Foreign Exchange Interventions Sebastian´ Fanelli CEMFI Ludwig Straub Harvard September Abstract We study a real small open economy with two key ingredients: (i) partial segmen-tation of home and foreign bond markets and (ii) a pecuniary externality that makes the real exchange rate excessively volatile in response to capital. The following points highlight the top four theories of exchange rates. The theories are: 1. Purchasing Power Parity Theory (PPP) 2. Interest Rate Parity Theory (IRP) 3. International Fisher Effect (IFE) Theory 4. Unbiased Forward Rate Theory (UFR). 1. Purchasing Power Parity Theory (PPP): The PPP theory applies to commodities. A foreign exchange transaction is still a shift of funds, or short-term financial claims, from one country and currency to another. Foreign exchange can be cash, funds available on credit cards and debit cards, traveller’s cheques, bank deposits, or other short-term claims.

Home and foreign bond markets are segmented and intermediaries are limited in their capacity to arbitrage across markets. As a result, the central bank can implement nonzero spreads by managing its portfolio.
