Dornbusch model dr hab. o Long-run features of the flexible price model (e.g. economy is at Short-run sticky prices are represented by a Phillips curve type. Dornbusch’s influential Overshooting Model aims to explain why floating The assumption of long-run PPP is made because prices are ‘sticky’ in the short run.

One of the remarkable features of Dornbusch’s paper is that today’s graduate prics can still easily read it in the original and, as I will document, many still do. Not being socialized in the modeel, I found it quite odd that a depreciation of the home exchange rate should be described as a rise in erather than a fall which seems more natural. Roughly 40 percent of the issues of Staff Papers published between and included at least one article citing the Dornbusch model; the Fund should have given him a column.

That prices must eventually adjust to a monetary shock may seem obvious to us today.

Rudiger Dornbusch’s masterpiece, “Expectations and Exchange Rate Dynamics” was published twenty-five years ago in the Journal of Political Economyin Outline of the model [ edit ] Assumption 1: But the elegance and clarity of Dornbusch’s model, and its obvious and immediate policy relevance, puts his paper in a separate class from the other international macroeconomics papers of its time.

Sargent Adam Smith Knut Wicksell. I have only presented a graphical depiction of overshooting, but it is not hard to fill in the algebra. Mundell is a creative giant who was thinking about a single currency in Europe back when intergalactic trade seemed like a more realistic topic for research.

Woodford, Michael, and Julio J. Frankel’s generalization is an important one since if a rise in the money supply signals high future inflation, it will have very different effects on long-term nominal interest rates than if the rise in the money supply is viewed as a temporary easing.

There priec others who were fishing in the same waters as Dornbusch at around the same time, e. Since this lecture is aimed at a broad audience, it is not my intention to invoke too many mathematical formulas, though there will be a few.


The first serious attempt is Brock, Ceteris paribusduring a period where a country is a large net importer of tradables, traded goods will be relatively abundant and the internal price of nontradables will be high.

Note that this whole result is driven by the assumed rigidity of domestic prices p.

The Phelps-Lucas islands paradigm for monetary policy is, for now, a footnote albeit a very clever one in the history of monetary theory. Cite Counts and Course Reading Lists Since we are here to focus on the innate beauty of the Dornbusch model, it is perhaps crass to list citation counts and other quantitative measures of influence.

In the generalized model, the Dornbusch type overshooting mechanism is the primary factor driving dornbuscb short-run results though there need not be overshooting depending on the model setup and mosel. The Chicago-Minnesota School maintained that sticky prices were nonsense and continued to advance this view for at least another fifteen years.

Focusing on real interest rates turns out to finesse this problem. That is, aggregate supply is horizontal in the short run, fornbusch it is positively sloped in the long run. News and World Report. In the simple model I present here, that rate of inflation just happens to equal the rate of exchange rate depreciation-see Obstfeld and Rogoff orChapter 9 for movel general case.

Clearly the Dornbusch article’s influence in teaching is still alive and well as we mark its twenty-fifth anniversary. Only after this process has run its course will a new long-run equilibrium be attained in the domestic money market, the currency exchange market, and the goods market.

Having witnessed Rudi engage the likes of young Larry Summers, Paul Krugman and Jeffrey Sachs, I would venture that Dornbusch’s international finance course at MIT is the answer to the trivia question “When was the last time these guys were completely humiliated in public? The new view can be found in many places, but certainly in the closed economy work of authors such as Rotemberg and WoodfordWoodfordand of course in New Open Economy Macroeconomics.

As the reader will readily deduce, it is not difficult to move interchangeably between the two approaches. Dornbusch’s Chicago classmate Michael Mussa my predecessor as Economic Counsellor at the Fund was also working stivky in the area in the time, shicky he delayed publication of his main piece on the topic until Mussa Now, if there is a consensus result in the empirical literature, it has to be that nothing, but nothing, can systematically explain exchange rates between major currencies with flexible exchange rates.


But this is certainly not the case with the “overshooting” result, as I will now briefly illustrate. Third, a formal analysis brings stick subtle details such as the assumption of no speculative asset price bubbles. At the same time, it turns out to greatly simplify analysis of the system’s dynamics.

Overshooting model – Wikipedia

Studies in Macroeconomic Theory: Introduction It is a great honor to pay tribute here to one of the most influential papers written in the field of International Economics since World War II. Aggregate demand is determined by the standard open economy IS-LM mechanism That is to say, the position of the Investment Saving IS curve is determined by the volume of injections into the flow of income and by the competitiveness of Home country output measured by xticky real exchange rate.

One of the first words that comes to mind in describing Dornbusch’s overshooting paper is ” elegant “. In their chapter for the Handbook of International Economics, Frankel and Rose observe that scores of attempts to reverse the Meese-Rogoff finding had only served to reinforce it.

Overshooting model

Dornbusch developed this model back when many economists held the view that ideal markets should reach equilibrium and stay there. But if it is not at this intersection, then it must lie on the line marked by arrows, as any other starting point will lead down a path in which the exchange rate either explodes or collapses, even if the money supply remains constant.

Then, dorbbusch, as prices of goods “unstick” and shift to the new equilibrium, the foreign exchange market continuously reprices, approaching its new long-term equilibrium level. For the periodthe social science citation index of major economics journals shows published articles citing Dornbusch
