The preceding chapters have dealt with a number of different specialised accounts of the manner whereby the regime of floating exchange rates could have an impact on the generation of inflation and its transmission across countries. These accounts embrace a sweeping range of postulates — each internally consistent as a partial explanation, but unable to provide a complete and coherent theory. While there are no compelling reasons to prefer one model over another, they all give recognition to the important role of exchange rates in the study of inflation. Not surprisingly, the current stock of empirical evidence is insufficient to determine which of the particular models offers the most apt description of inflationary process in the current regime of managed floating. Moreover, the common real shocks arising from oil price increases and other disturbances in primary commodity markets make it difficult to isolate the role of exchange rates in the inflationary episodes of the s. With these considerations in mind, this chapter attempts to draw together some of the diverse strands of thought that have appeared from time to time in this volume.
The behavior of interest rates in major industrial countries affects capital movements and, consequently, exchange rates and trade flows. It may also influence the attitude of policymakers toward the growth of the money supply. The level of interest rates in these countries is a critical determinant of the cost of servicing the external debt of the developing countries. The Fund, in carrying out its purposes, is concerned with changes in interest rates, especially in connection with its surveillance over the exchange rate and debt policies of member countries. In support of the surveillance exercise through consultations under Article IV the Fund prepares a series of World Economic Outlook papers and, from time to time, it also undertakes analytical studies of interest rates in developing and developed countries. During the past few years, interest rates in industrial countries have been higher and more variable than at any time over recent decades.

exchange rate policy, which is compatible with their economic targets in run relationship between interest rates, inflation, and exchange rates for the five.
The purpose of the study is to measure the effects of changes in exchange rates and interest rates on inflation and to determine which of the exchange rates or interest rates has a greater impact on inflation rate following the July 15, coup attempt in Turkey. Our expectation is that similar to most authors is to find that there is a long-term relationship between the inflation rates and both the exchange rate and interest rates and that the effect of the exchange rate on the Producer Price Index PPI is greater than that of the interest rates.
