Dornbusch Model M-F Model: with fixed prices policy conclusions are valid only in short run, . Price level is sticky: AS is horizontal in SR (impact phase). 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.

Dornbusch inspired fresh thinking and brought in fresh faces into the field. InDornbusch could only assure us that all paths except those on the dashed line “did not make sense. 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. The idea has enormous appeal, but eticky some time to penetrate the economics profession, not least because few economists were familiar with the now standard techniques needed to prive it.
A small number of equations is necessary if only to impress upon the reader how simple the concept really is. Let pgice reiterate some of the lasting contributions of the Dornbusch model. Therefore, the properties of the model at the beginning are preserved in long run equilibrium, the original equilibrium was stable.
Rather, exchange rate volatility was needed to temporarily equilibrate the system in response to monetary shocks, because underlying national prices adjust so slowly.
Elsevier Science Publishers B. Initially, because of the “stickiness” of prices dornbuwch goods, the new short run equilibrium level will first be achieved through shifts in financial market prices. Note that this whole result is driven by the assumed rigidity of domestic prices p. More recent work can be found in papers presented the Pricee Conference on Empirical Exchange Rate Modeling, http: The first serious attempt is Brock, One often sees this pattern in practice, particularly for countries that are forced to quickly reverse current account balances.
This author is certainly among them. Several recent attempts sticoy reconcile exchange rate theory and data turn on generalizing this equation, though it remains to proven how fruitful this approach will be. Essays in Honor of Assaf Razin.
The Basic Idea 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. If the nominal money supply rises but the price level modwl temporarily fixed, then the supply of real balances m-p must rise as well. Does uncovered interest parity really hold in practice? I guess if I had really understood what was going on back then, it would have been easy to follow which way the curves were supposed to shift.
Now suppose, following Dornbusch’s famous thought experiment, xornbusch there is an unanticipated permanent increase in the money supply m.
I believe, however, that a closer dornvusch at the data would support the view that the wealth channel was quite important in these instances.
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.
A word about New Open Economy Macroeconomics, which Obstfeld surveyed pdice year; certainly this literature has come to dominate the academic literature on international macroeconomic policy. Rudi has what can only be described as a confrontational style of teaching, challenging his class with a mix of incredibly stickyy questions. For the periodthe social science citation index of major economics journals shows published articles citing Dornbusch 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.
This will also give the reader a bit of the flavor of the period.
So how does “overshooting” work? This divergence of views led to a long rift between macroeconomics and much of mainstream international finance. We have come to praise the overshooting model, not to bury it, but it is time for a few hard facts about the data.
Put differently, money is neutral here if all nominal quantities, including the price level, are fully flexible. We will do it later. One has to realize that at the time Dornbusch was writing, the world had just made the transition from fixed to flexible exchange rates, and no one really understood what was going on.
Is there anything that was not already obvious by looking at equations 1 and 2? According to equation 1it is possible for i to fall if and only if, over the future life of the bond contract, the home currency is expected to appreciate.

Sitting beside the MIT students, there were also many Ph. In this sense, rational expectations is a way of imposing overall consistency on one’s theoretical analysis. Second, one can now easily analyze a much richer menu of disturbances, such as anticipated monetary shocks, though again I will leave it for the reader to look at other references for details.
Even towards the end of the nineties, Dornbusch was still getting over 25 citations per year.
