hard peg

Definition

Economics

  • A pegged exchange rate with a credible commitment never to change the par value, thus subordinating monetary policy to the needs of the exchange market and denying access to devaluation as a policy tool. In practice, the effects of a hard peg are achieved only through a currency board or by adopting another country's currency, e.g. dollarization.
