To match the lower interest rate the exchange rate will be appreciating. That process continues until the fiscal expansion actually gets underway, and leads to excess demand and inflation. Only when real balances and hence interest rates have been pushed up beyond their initial level, does the corrective depreciation start. The depreciation then continues, along with the phasing out of the fiscal expansion, until the initial equilibrium is restored. 1 The real exchange rate effect of a transitory fiscal expansion EXTENSION OF THE THEORY Three features of the extended Mundell-Fleming model account for its strong and unambiguous predictions.
More recent versions of the hypothesis recognise that international portfolio shifts are more likely to take the form of shifts in the demand for interest-bearing assets denominated in different currencies. But the recommendation remains to fix exchange rates, using exchange rate orientated monetary policy to hold rates and accommodate money demand shifts. In other words unsteri/ised intervention is to be used. This policy recommendation prescribes exactly the wrong kind of intervention. To offset the exchange rate impact of shifts in the demand for bonds the currency denomination of the world bond portfolio should be allowed to change.
3 the empirical tests hold for the entire 1974--84 period and not only for the period of dollar appreciation in the period 1980-85. They work equally well when applied to multilateral exchange rates for the entire floating rate period. Fiscal expansion invariably leads to real appreciation. It is not clear, however, whether for a sample period including 1985-88 the performance of these equations continues to hold up. 10 Since 1985 real interest differentials, which had been in favour of the US by 3-4 percentage points in 1984--85 have declined and thus support the evidence of dollar depreciation.
