This paper contributes to the debate on the magnitude of exchange rate elasticities by providing a set of price and quantity elasticities for 51 advanced and emerging-market economies. Specifically, for each of these countries we report the elasticity of trade prices and trade quantities on both the export and on the import sides, as well as the reaction of the trade balance. Value-added Trade, Exchange Rate Pass-Through and Trade Elasticity: Revisiting the Trade Competitiveness Syed Al-Helal Uddin y Florida International University October 15, 2016 Abstract How is exchange rate pass-through (ERPT) measure affected by increasing par-ticipation in global value chains? This paper measures ERPT for value-added Exchange rate elasticity of exports has declined over time The rise of GVC participation could explain 40 percent of the fall in the elasticity (using average GVC participation) Our findings suggest that while currency depreciations can boost exports, their effectiveness does appear to have muted Exchange rate index This gives a measure of a currency against a trade-weighted basket of currencies. It is expressed as an index, where the value of the index will be 100 in the base year. The weight given to each currency depends upon the proportion of transactions done with the country. amount. „e contemporaneous volume elasticity for the dollar exchange rate is 0:19, while the elasticity for the bilateral exchange rate is an order of magnitude smaller at 0:03. „ese pass-through estimates point to a potential misspeci•cation in standard pass-through regressions that ignore the role of the dollar. numerically using simulated data and we show that it can uncover the true elasticity of trade. Applying our estimator to alternative data sets and conducting several robustness exercises allows us to establish a range for the elasticity of trade between 2.79 to 4.46. In contrast, EK’s approach would have found a range of 4.17 to 9.6. International Trade and Exchange Rate | 5. developing countries beginning 2014—and quite dramatically in 2015 (4.3% compared with 1.4% for developing countries [Figures 13 and 14]). So attributing the slump in global trade growth to weak demand in developed countries does not jive with what is actually happening.
