In response to a negative terms-of-trade shock, countries with fixed regimes experience large and significant declines in real GDP, and the real exchange rate depreciates slowly and by means of a fall in prices. Countries with more flexible regimes, by contrast, tend to have small real GDP losses and immediate large real depreciations.

Countries with more flexible regimes, by contrast, tend to have small real GDP losses and immediate large real depreciations. I use a post-Bretton Woods sample (1973-96) of seventy-five developing countries to assess whether the responses of real GDP, real exchange rates, and prices to terms-of-trade shocks differ systematically across exchange rate regimes. I find that responses are significantly different across regimes in a way that supports Friedman’s hypothesis. Factors Influencing Terms Of Trade In Developing Countries: 1. Elasticity of Demand and Supply in two Countries. Generally, the terms of trade depend upon the ‘reciprocal demand’ for goods i.e., the demand and supply of one country’s goods in the other country and other country’s goods in this country due to change in prices. empirical findings support the view that the exchange rate regime matters as to how countries respond to exogenous external shocks like terms of trade shocks, in that output variation is greater for countries with fixed regimes, while for flexible regime countries real exchange rate variation reduces the need for output variability. I. Overview The exchange rate regimes adopted by countries in today's international monetary and financial system, and the system itself, are profoundly different from those envisaged at the 1944 meeting at Bretton Woods establishing the IMF and the World Bank.

Sharp swings in a developing country's terms of trade—the price of its exports relative to the price of its imports—can seriously disrupt output growth. An analysis of the effects of a decline in export prices in seventy-five developing economies suggests that countries with a flexible exchange rate will experience a much milder contraction Terms-of-Trade Shocks and Exchange Rate Regimes in A Small Open Economy of credit supply and productivity shocks in developing countries, comparing the domestic versus the foreign nature of effect of a terms of trade shock on per capita income depends on the exchange rate regime. The impact is smaller in countries with a flexible exchange rate, where relative prices tend to adjust more rapidly through the nominal exchange rate. In countries with a fixed exchange
