Abstract

The degree to which a change in exchange rate is reflected in changes in the domestic prices is termed exchange rate pass through (ERPT). In this work, we trace the evolutionary path of the ERPT to domestic prices in The Gambia using 60 windows of rolling VARs from 2002m1 to 2012m12. Our findings show pass through is higher in the long run than in the short run, and that irrespective of the horizon considered EPRT has been declining since 2002. Hence, exchange rate fluctuations those not seem to pose any significant threat to monetary policy in The Gambia.
