IS-LM-BP in the Pampas
NBER Working Paper No. 9337
Emerging markets (sometimes endowed with fertile pampas) have limited access to world capital markets and suffer from original sin: they cannot borrow in their own currency. Does this mean that monetary and exchange rate policy has non-standard effects in such countries? We develop a simple IS-LM-BP model with balance sheet effects to study that question. Our answer: it all depends.
