Author

Physical Description

Notes
  • This paper investigates the effectiveness of the monetary authority's borrowing policies in resolving exchange rate crises. It shows why obtaining loans or lines of credIt in foreign currency may avoid, at least temporarily, the deyaluation of a fixed exchange rate, and discusses the problea of the optimal size of the loan and/​or the line of credit. The analysis focuses on a particular episode of foreign exchange rate pressure, during the troubled years between 1894 to 1896. The results suggest that the borrowing policy followed by the U.S. Treasury in those years was effective in avoiding the collapse of the United States' gold standard, and that the amount of the borrowing undertaken by the Treasury might have been optimal.
