Chapter 29, Problem 25CTQ

If a country’s currency is expected to appreciate in value, what would you think will be the impact of expected exchange rates on yields (e.g., the Interest rate paid on government bonds) in that country? Hint: Think about how expected exchange rate changes and interest rates affect a currency’s demand and supply.

In the foreign exchange market, the supply curve for the dollar is upward sloping. That is, when the exchange rate (foreign currency per dollar) increases, the quantity of dollars supplied increases. Assuming actors have not yet had time to change their expectations about the future exchange rate, when the exchange rate increases, why is the supply curve of dollars in the foreign exchange market upward sloping? Foreign goods and services are less expensive to import. U.S. firms profit more by selling their goods and services domestically rather than selling to foreigners. The expected profitability of purchasing a dollar today to sell in the future rises. U.S. goods are less expensive for foreigners to purchase.
