内容简介:We empirically assess how different firm characteristics matter for the degree ofexchange rate pass-through, using data with 53,355 Chinese production firms exporting 6,314 products to 179 destinations over 2000-2006. We find an important role for firm productivity in reducing the degree of pass-through, which can be partly attributed to a stronger response of export quality to exchange rate movements for firms with high productivity or larger shares of imported inputs. More fundamentally, our quality regressions imply that pass-through estimations are biased if contemporaneous quality changes are not accounted for. Next, we document pass-through asymmetries between depreciations and appreciations. We find that the average firm is less responsive to appreciations than depreciations, with greater pass-through into importers’ currency prices during appreciations and lower pass-through during depreciations, in line with inelastic foreign demand. Furthermore, we show a special or "dominant" role of the US dollar: changes in the real RMBUSD exchange rate affect export prices and quality strongly and more so than the bilateral RMB exchange rate vis-a-vis destinations currencies.
