Abstract

This book aims to enhance the understanding of the dynamics of exchange rate pass-through in South Africa. We therefore provide empirical evidence as invaluable insights into the search for appropriate policy responses. This is needed to understand the effects of exchange rate volatility, to reduce inflation and facilitate macroeconomic stability.
