      The International Monetary Fund, both criticized and lauded for its efforts to promote financial stability, continues to find itself at the forefront of global economic crisis management. In post-crisis Asia, all crisis-hit countries (except Malaysia) announced a shift from exchange rate based monetary policy framework to the explicit adoption of inflation targeting that uses interest rates as the key monetary policy operating instrument. In this study, we examine the empirical relationship between exchange rates and interest. -monetary and fiscal policies influence the level of US interest rates-in the short term, interest rates are the key determinant of exchange rates -exchange rates are a key linkage between US agriculture and the world economy -imports rise when dollar is strong, leading to more foreign competition.

The authors examine the implications of the East Asian currency crisis for exchange rate arrangements in the region's emerging market by:   International monetary coordination has gone beyond exchange rates, and involved several aspects of central banking, including on one occasion a coordinated interest rate change.

Such coordination is aimed at the specific circumstances of the crisis and has helped to restore confidence in financial markets. China prohibits its private sector from freely trading foreign assets and tightly manages currency exchange rates.
