Barry Eichengreen & Ricardo Hausmann, 1999. In this paper we analyze three views of the relationship between the exchange rate and financial fragility: (1) the moral hazard hypothesis, according to which pegged exchange rates offer implicit insurance against exchange risk and thereby encourage reckless borrowing and lending; (2) the original sin hypothesis, which emphasizes an incompleteness in financial markets which prevents the domestic currency from being used to borrow abroad or to borrow long term even domestically; and (3) the commitment problem hypothesis, which sees financial crises as resulting from neither moral hazard nor original sin but from the weakness of the institutions that address commitment problems. In this section we show how savings gluts affect financial fragility. When the fixed exchange rate is abandoned in favor of a crawling peg, banks go bankrupt, the domestic interest rate rises, real wages fall, and output declines. Borio and Disyatat (2011) use the term “excess elasticity” to refer to this expansion of the financial system in good times. Exchange Rates and Financial Fragility . By Barry Eichengreen and Ricardo HausmannBarry Eichengreen and Ricardo Hausmann.

Abstract. Örebro University School of Business. 2001-06-23 Authors. Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis REVIEW September/October 2013 361 Economic Vulnerability and Financial Fragility William R. Emmons and Bryan J. Noeth The recent financial crisis and recession inflicted substantial economic and financial harm on millions of families, but the effects were not uniform across the population. Firstly, unlike most of the previous business upswings, the last one showed private investment (and also non-oil exports; see below) growing at a fast rate, while government expenditures stagnated. Interactions between banks and open capital account are investigated as rationalizations for empirical regularities characterizing disinflation programs anchored by the exchange rate. The banking system, the exchange rate regime, and central bank credit policy are seen as parts of a mechanism intended to maximize social welfare; if the mechanism fails, banking crises and speculative attacks become possible. By Barry Eichengreen and Ricardo Hausmann. This paper proposes an explanation for these regularities. In this paper we analyze three views of the relationship between the exchange rate and financial fragility: (1) the moral hazard hypothesis, according to which pegged exchange rates offer implicit insurance against exchange risk and thereby encourage reckless borrowing and lending; (2) the original sin hypothesis, which emphasizes an incompleteness in financial markets which prevents the domestic currency from being used to borrow abroad or to borrow long term even domestically; and (3) the commitment problem hypothesis, which sees financial crises as resulting from neither moral hazard nor original sin but from the weakness of the institutions that address commitment problems.
