This introductory chapter begins with an overview of the dollarization debate, which essentially calls for the reevaluation of countries’ exchange rate policies. It argues that although dollarization has been effective in stopping high inflation, it has been less reliable in providing fiscal discipline and promoting flexible labour markets. Brief descriptions of the papers included in this volume are presented.
