Abstract
Using quarterly data from 20002007 and applying Error Correction Model and Johansen Co integration Approaches I estimate the impact of real oil price on the real exchange rate of Azerbaijani manat. Estimation outputs derived from these approaches are very close to each other and indicate that real oil price has statistically significant positive impact on real exchange rate in the longrun. Besides, revealed that relative price as a proxy for productivity has also explanatory power in explaining longrun behavior of real exchange rate. Estimated Error Correction Term indicates that halflife of adjustment toward longrun equilibrium level takes 34 quarters. Since findings of this study occur as results of high fiscal expansion my policy suggestions mainly related to Fiscal policy implementations.
