6 CHAPTER 12 The Open Economy Revisited In a system of floating exchange rates , e is allowed to fluctuate in response to changing economic conditions. In contrast, under fixed exchange rates , the central bank trades domestic for foreign currency at a predetermined price. Next, policy analysis – first, in a floating exchange rate system then, in a fixed exchange rate system
