REAL EXCHANGE RATE OF THE CZECH KORUNA AND THE PRICES OF NON-TRADABLE GOODS AND SERVICES
The paper presents both theoretical and an empirical analysis of factors influencing the prices of non-tradable goods and services in the Czech economy. The analysis discusses the development of the real exchange rate of the Czech koruna and quantifies the size of the real exchange rate appreciation of the Czech currency in the period 1993-2007 as a result of the domestic price development in the tradable and non-tradable sectors. The paper mathematically derives a relationship between the prices of non-tradable goods and services and the real exchange rate based on a traditional aggregate base. It also defines the basic determinants of the prices of non-tradable goods and services while emphasizing the basic distinctions between these price determinants for non-tradable and tradable goods and services. The econometric part of the paper is based on VAR models, cointegration analysis, and vector error correction models. The empirical verification is carried out with the Czech economic data covering the period 1996-2007.
