Being “Afraid of Float” to “Benign Neglect”, A Jolting Ride of SBP on the Roller Coaster of Exchange Rate Regime

Dr. Syed Kumail Rizvi, Lahore School of Economics
(Paper co-authored with Nawazish Mirza and Bushra Naqvi)

"One of the most pressing issues concerning policy makers today is the choice of an exchange rate regime. Despite that fact, if authorities focus on the following principles, namely, full implementation to ensure credibility and synchronization with domestic realities and economic infrastructure, the list of alternative options could be narrowed down. This paper attempts to propose an optimal exchange rate regime to the monetary authorities of Pakistan (SBP) based on a historical study of the outcomes and performance of different monetary stances that have been taken for the last forty years."
