Sample text

The relationship between real and nominal exchange rates in this example can be expressed in the following approximation (which obviously can be applied to any two countries, not just the United States and Japan): % DReal exchange rate (¥/$) » % DNominal exchange rate (¥/$) − (Japanese inflation % − US inflation %) If we assume, for convenience, that foreign inflation is zero, then (by rearranging terms) we can also say that the real appreciation of a country’s currency approximately equals the country’s inflation rate minus its nominal depreciation rate—that is: Real appreciation of Currency X » Inflation rate of Country X − Nominal depreciation of Currency X where all of these changes are expressed in percentages.

And, with the nominal exchange rate still pegged to the dollar (at the same official rate), a larger number of yuan would inevitably translate into a larger number of dollars, once repatriated. The point is that the effects of a real appreciation, triggered by inflation, will closely mimic the effects of a nominal appreciation, both favorable and unfavorable, even though the nominal exchange rate hasn’t budged. Unfortunately, many business managers—­particularly those with little experience in international markets—remain far more alert to changes in nominal exchange rates than to changes in real exchange rates, even though the latter may be every bit as important in determining the health and vitality of their firms.
