1 In an instructive metaphor, The Economist (26 August 1995) describes the approach underlying the BMI in the following terms: Suppose a man climbs ﬁve feet up a sea wall, and then climbs down twelve feet. Whether he drowns or not depends upon how high above sea-level he was when he started. The same problem arises in deciding whether currencies are under- or over-valued. The current exchange rate is analogous to the position of the man on the sea wall, and the PPP rate is the sea-level. Thus, whether the currency is priced correctly by the market is determined by reference to its PPP value.
In other words, stochastic PPP means that there exists a ‘neutral band’ around the 45degree line that contains values of the exchange rate and prices that identify the currency as being ‘correctly priced’. Under relative PPP, these points are interpreted as deviations from parity. Obviously, the width of the band is the key to this approach: If it is sufﬁciently wide, then all possible conﬁgurations of exchange rates and prices would be contained in the band, and the approach would be vacuous. On the other hand, if the band is sufﬁciently narrow, all observations would locate outside it, and the approach always would be rejected.
To test the signiﬁcance of the pattern of deviations from parity, we employ two tests, one based on a contingency table and the other a runs test. Consider again the signs of successive pricing errors. If these errors are independent, then the probability of the currency being overor undervalued in year t + 1 is unaffected by mispricing in year t. 54 Notes: 1. The real exchange rate for country c in year t is deﬁned as qct = log Pct Sct Pt∗ , where Pct is the price of a Big Mac hamburger in country c during t, Pt∗ is the corresponding price in the United States, and Sct, is the nominal exchange rate, deﬁned as the domestic currency cost of US$1.
