Title: Is dollarization an answer to economic crisis: evidence from Zimbabwe
Authors: Masunda, Stein
Keywords: Dollarization, Monetary arrangement, Exchange rate regime, Economic Growth, stabilization
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: This study seeks to establish the role of dollarization as a stabilisation policy in response to economic crises. Using an autoregressive distributed lag model, with data spanning the period 1980 through 2012, findings suggest that dollarization can be used as alternative monetary arrangement for economic stabilization. The results of the study indicate that the mean GDP per capita in the dollarized era is on a high side as compared to the non-dollarized period. More so, past growth contributes positively and significantly to growth in an economy and the contribution declines with space.
