Small Union of Two Countries

  • Michael Carlberg
Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


In this section we make the following assumptions. The monetary union is a small open economy with perfect capital mobility. For the small union, the world interest rate is given exogenously r* = const. Under perfect capital mobility, the union interest rate corresponds to the world interest rate r = r*. Thus the union interest rate is constant, too. The exchange rate between the union and the rest of the world is flexible.
