Another Southeast Asian Crisis However, as it is, if for any reason the US dollar, which is the world’s pivotal currency, strengthens significantly or weakens significantly, it does not follow in the present circumstances that Southeast Asian countries would pari passu come under serious exchange rate pressure. As Figure 2 shows, one, unlike in 1997/1998 when many of the Southeast Asian countries had had serious long-term balance of payments disequilibria, they all have had impressive yearly balance of payments surpluses after the catastrophic collapse of their exchange rates.

Japan’s surprisingly long deflationary hangover can be better understood by looking at relative wholesale (tradable goods) prices in Japan and the United States arising out of yen appreciation (Figure 1). By the mid-1970s, inflation in Japan’s WPI fell below the high inflation rate in the US, but was still positive. However, when the American price level stabilized in the mid-1980s, Japan’s WPI inflation turned sharply negative from the massive appreciation of the yen over 1985–1987 — coming out of the 1985 Plaza Hotel Accord to depreciate the dollar.

When the devaluation finally came, the inflationary acceleration was no more than a blip. What matters to stabilizing inflation is a domestic policy that is prepared to stop inflation — which is why inflation targeting has been such a success. Most economists also recognize two important costs to giving up the exchange rate as a policy instrument by fixing the exchange rate.
