Monetary tightening in emerging countries 11/5/2021

Kazakhstan : Tenge free-float turns to a strong depreciation 9/16/2015
Kazakh Tenge lost one third of its value in one month. The net creditor position of the government (about 35% of GDP) does not compensate for the negative effects of the fall in the oil prices and the devaluation of the Chinese Yuan that took place only days before the decision of Kazakh authorities to free float their currency. This decision improves the financial leeway of the government, but its stimulus capacity may be dampened by the rates’ tightening, inevitable to stabilize the exchange market. The devaluation undermines the banking sector which remains highly dollarized. To avoid a deposit run, the National Bank committed to compensate the loss due to the devaluation to the households who will keep their deposits until September 2016.
