(a) AD intersects AS at 1000 = 400 + 50 M P , which means M P = 12 . With M = 48 francs, P = 4 francs/bottle. Use the formula e nom = e P For P = 5 wedges/bottle 20 crowns/wedge = 4 francs/bottle = 25 crowns/franc. (b) At 50 crowns/franc, the franc is overvalued as the o¢ cial rate exceeds the funda- mental value. The domestic Central Bank will lose reserve assets over time if it tries to maintain the o¢ cial rate. (c) To get e nom = 50 crowns/franc for the fundamental value, use the formula e nom = e P For P 50 crowns/franc = 5 wedges/bottle 20 crowns/wedge = P francs/bottle, so P = 2 francs/bottle. Since M P = 12 , you need M = 24 francs to get P = 2 francs/bottle. 4. (a) Domestic country: output falls, real interest rate falls, and net exports rise.
