Is globalization passing through?
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this paper I examine if the pricing behavior of foreign and domestic producersselling on the Swedish market has changed during the globalization. I develop amodel not only taking the cost faced by producers into account, but also the price set by competitors and the currency in which prices are set. This allows me to estimate if the exchange rate pass-through and the pass-through of costs have changed since the 1990s. I find that the domestic producer price inflation has become less sensitive to foreign prices and that the exchange rate and domestic prices are more important to the foreign producers now than 10 years ago.
