  内容简介:

  Using a novel panel data method, this paper studies the effects of Hong Kong's fixed exchange rate against U.S. dollar. After the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, many of the Asia countries adopted flexible exchange rate policies while Hong Kong still keeps its fixed exchange rate. By comparing Hong Kong versus its major trading partners, we show that if like other Asian countries, Hong Kong had adopted a float exchange rate policy in August 1997, Hong Kong's (counterfactual) total value of exports would increase by 21.28%. Similarly, Hong Kong's total value of imports would increase about 41.07%. We conclude that Hong Kong dollar is overvalued by 18.33% due to its fixed exchange rate policy.
