Capital Controls, Exchange Rate Volatility, and the Risk Premium
Frenkel, Michael | Stadtmann, Georg

We use the Jeanne / Rose (2002) noise trader framework in foreign exchange markets to introduce a tax on international capital flows. As such a tax exerts two effects in opposite directions, we derive the capital control level that minimizes the risk premium and show the conditions under which a zero capital control level is optimal.
