2). In Frankel’s view, the equilibrium exchange-rate model provides a good description of what happens during hyperinflations, when prices are extremely flexible, whereas the Dornbusch model would be relevant in the case of a low and stable inflation differential. His own model, which he applied to the D-Mark–US dollar rate over the July 1974–February 1978 period, was meant to describe a situation of moderate inflation differentials. Later research suggests that Frankel’s validation of the real-interest-ratedifferential model was an historical accident (Isaac and de Mel 2001).

In 1995 a Bundesbank study put the percentage of German mark notes in the hands of foreigners at about 40 (Joint Economic Committee 2000).

Assume that, starting from an equilibrium with full employment in an economy with a given and constant production capacity, the money supply expands (in the form of a discrete jump, so that there is no ongoing inflation and consequently no Fisherian inflation compensation in nominal interest rates).
