Title: Relative Price Risk in an Open Economy with Flexible Exchange Rates
Abstract: This paper analyses the determinants of relative price risk for an open multi-markets economy where agents observe local prices and a global flexible exchange rate. Estimates with German data (1973 - 1985) confirm (i) that relative price risks is a positive function of domestic monetary disturbances and of nominal and real exchange rate shocks, and (ii) that aggregate output is negatively affected by relative price risk.
