The Dollarization Debate

Dominick Salvatore, James W. Dean, and Thomas D. Willett

Abstract

This book presents a compilation of papers that explore the dollarization debate. The prevailing view is that all exchange rate regimes have benefits and costs, which will vary across countries. The book is divided into four parts. Part I presents a general analysis of the dollarization debate. Part II focuses on the political economy. Part III looks into the dollarization debate in North America. Part IV considers the case for dollarization in Latin America.

Keywords: dollarization, exchange rate regime, currency
