|Title:||The effects of the widening of the ERM bands on the Irish pound||Authors:||Walsh, Brendan M.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/1774||Date:||2-Mar-1995||Online since:||2010-01-15T14:41:09Z||Abstract:||This paper examines the bahaviour of Irish exchange rates and interest rates over two periods, one immediately before, the other immediately after, the widening of the narrow band of the Exchange Rate Mechanism of the European Monetary System in August 1993. It is shown that a benefit of the dismantling of the narrow band was that the Irish pound did not come under speculative pressure as sterling weakened late in 1994 and it was possible to check the currency's appreciation relative to sterling by a depreciation relative to the DM. Moreover, the influence of the sterling exchange rate on Irish interest rates appears to have been substantially reduced under the new regime.||Item notes:||A hard copy is available in UCD Library at GEN 330.08 IR/UNI||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
