This video lecture walks students through a few scenarios that could lead to a change in a country's exchange rate and introduces the concept of a managed exchange rate system. Japan and the US are used as an example. We'll see what happens to the value of the Yen when the Bank of Japan engages in expansionary monetary policy, as well as what happens to the dollar when foreign investors speculate on its future appreciation.
We'll also see how the US government may go about intervening in the market for its own currency to assure a stable exchange rate against the Yen, and show the effect of exchange rate management on the foreign exchange market for dollars in Japan.
