This chapter provides an analytical foundation for a discussion of currency concepts. It describes terms such as capital account convertibility, exchange rate flexibility, and purchasing power parity. It also explains the differences between an international currency, one that is used widely in international trade and finance transactions, and a reserve currency, one that is used by foreign central banks to store their foreign exchange reserves.
