The main aim of this conference is to take stock of the latest research on the economics of exchange rate adjustment. Economists and policymakers have been discussing for quite a while whether and how far the exchange rate is an effective shock absorber or a source of macroeconomic and financial instability. This discussion has been influenced by the shift in thinking about the determinants of exchange rates from trade related to financial factors, which has become more pronounced since the financial crisis of 2008/09, as well as by recent micro-economic research on exporters’ behaviour and the role of the dollar as dominant currency in trade invoicing and pricing.
