▪ As we indicate, the equality holds because of arbitrage. Suppose

now that we are talking about the Peruvian Sol and the dollar and:
▪ iS /.  iUS \$ + ESe /. perUS \$ ES /. perUS \$ : deposits in soles are more attractive
than deposits in dollars, Peru should experience capital inflows
▪ iS /.  iUS \$ + ESe /. perUS \$ ES /. perUS \$ : deposits in soles are less attractive,
Peru should experience capital outflows
▪ For that reason, assuming no inflation and no expected
depreciation, we can express the Financial Account (FA) as:
FA =  +  ( rS /. − rUS \$ ) =  +  ( r − r * )   0,   0

▪ A CA deficit (NX<0) should be offset by a FA superavit (FA>0)

▪ There will be a FA superavit if there are capital inflows, or

▪ It is more attractive to invest in the local economy (in Peru and

not in the US)

This will boost exports and diminish imports

UOL - Macro I Review

The IS-LM-BP Model

▪ The Balance of Payments (BP) identity indicates
CA + FA = 0
X (Y * , e ) − M (Y , e ) +  +  ( r − r * ) = 0

▪ FA = Financial Account (called in the tutorials KA, Capital

Account)
▪ Recall, from UIP with no expected depreciation, the FA is
given by FA =  +  r − r =  +  r − r *
( S /. US \$ ) (
  0,   0 )
Typically beta is positive. How to interpret beta? Is how sensitive is
the FA to changes in the interest rates’ differential. Suppose capital
flows are no allowed, then beta should be equal to zero (also
alpha). The idea is that when there is NO capital mobility, the size of
the interest rate gap is irrelevant, the FA is always equal to zero

The equation for the BP curve is
Derivation of the BP curve:

We start at Y0,r0. r BP
If Y increases to Y1:
Imports rise. Interest rates
must rise to achieve the BP
equilibrium (a deterioration in r1
the CA should be offset with
an improvement in the FA).
Intuitively, a higher trade r0
deficit should be financed via
more capital inflows,
something that will only occur Y
as long as the domestic Y0 Y1
interest rate is higher (taken
as given r*)

The IS-LM-BP Model: Adjustment to the Equilibrium

In this example with partial capital r IS LM

internal equilibrium, but the
external accounts (BP) are not in
equilibrium. In particular, the BP
internal equilibrium coincides with r0
an excess of capital inflows (local r rBP =0

There are two scenarios:
A) Fixed exchange rates: the excess of
capital inflows will change the relative BP
price of the foreign currency (e.g.
dollar). To maintain the value of the
exchange rate, the Central Bank is
willing to absorb (purchase dollars with
“new “soles) the excess of dollars Y

The IS-LM-BP Model: Adjustment to the Equilibrium

B) Under flexible exchange rates, an
excess of capital inflows means an
excess of dollars. This will determine
that the relative price of the dollar is r IS LM
lower (drop in the exchange rate)

A change in e will affect

Y = C ( Y ) + I ( r ) + G + X (Y * , e ) − M (Y , e ) BP
X (Y * , e ) − M (Y , e ) +  +  ( r − r * ) = 0

A reduction in e will decrease net

exports (X-M). With lower net
exports, the BP curve and the IS curve
Y
will shift to the left
What is the interpretation? With a deterioration of net exports, the economy needs to
finance this higher deficit (or smaller superavit) attracting more capital flows. The BP
curve shifts to the left, reflecting that this is only possible via higher local interest rates

The fiscal expansion determines a

temporary increase in output and the
local interest rate. Since the local r = r *

interest rate is higher than the
international rate (with perfect CM
both are equal), and there is perfect
CM, there will be a huge capital inflow

To avoid the appreciation of the local r IS LM
currency (drop in e), the Central Bank
buys the excess of dollars in the
market, and this is possible thanks to
an expansionary monetary policy, that
shifts the LM to the right. In general, r = r *

Comments on (a): Imperfect CM. Show how the internal and external equilibria

Point: the final equilibrium (after the movements r IS BP LM

expansion of output. A bigger expansion would
imply a higher interest rate than the initial one,
and a drop in investment. Is the drop in investment
feasible? Recall that “S - I = CA” and note:

2. Spriv=Y-T-C. Then private and total savings are
rising
3. Investment must rise in order to maintain CA=0 Y
