Important questions underlying the contentions are about: (1) whether RMB appreciation is necessary to reduce current account imbalances in China and the US; and (2) whether the appreciation will induce recessionary impacts on the Chinese economy. Admittedly, both are empirical issues. However, to our surprise, they are not dealt with in a unified framework. indd 36 03/07/2012 10:39 The renminbi debate 37 We employ a vector autoregressive (VAR) model to assess the role of the exchange rate in Japan and China.

With this separation, we can examine the hypothesis whether the behavior of the real exchange rate is invariant with respect to the exchange rate regime.
