Contractual Price Rigidities and Exchange Rate Adjustment

Oxelheim, Lars LU and Wihlborg, Clas (1990) In International Trade Journal 5(1). p.53-76
Abstract
Recent years have provided overwhelming evidence for substantial deviations from purchasing power parity as calculated from price indices for internationally traded goods and services. These deviations have significant implications for pricing policies of multinational firms. This article reports the findings of a comparative study of Swedish and Singaporean firms. It is aimed at assessing the importance of different kinds of contracts in corporate pricing strategies and in the macroadjustment process. Specifically, the purpose of the study is to investigate the importance of different implicit and explicit corporate strategies related to this issue.
