  17. 17. 17 Basic Relationships Difference in interest rates 1+ryen/1+r$ Expected change in spot rate E(syen/$)/syen/$ Expected difference in inflation rates E(1+iyen)/E(1+i$) Difference between forward and spot rates fyen/$/syen/$ equals equals equals equals Suppose that individuals were not worried about risk and that there were no barriers or costs to international trade on capital flows.
  18. 18. 18 Interest rates and exchange rates •  Interest rate parity theory says that the difference in interest rates must equal the difference between the forward and spot exchange rates. Difference in interest rates 1+ryen/1+r$ Difference between forward and spot rates fyen/$/syen/$ equals
