transfer problem

Definition

Economics

  • Made famous in a debate between Keynes (1929a,b,c) and Ohlin (1929a,b), this is the question of whether a financial transfer from one country to another will cause, at an unchanged real exchange rate, an equal change in the countries' bilateral trade balance, thus "effecting" the transfer in real terms.
