Inhalt

Oil and gas are mainly produced in emerging market economies such as Russia. In particular oil is traded on world spot and futures markets in US dollars. For this reason the exchange rate of oil and gas producing countries’ currencies has a crucial impact on government revenues, macroeconomic stability and growth. This is acknowledged by policy makers of oil and gas exporting countries by stabilizing exchange rates against the US dollar. The dollar pegs, however, make oil and gas exporting countries vulnerable to macroeconomic policy decisions in the US. The lecture explains the macroeconomic development of oil and gas exporting countries such as Russia by analyzing the working mechanism of currency markets and the determinants of exchange rate movements (lectures 1 to 5). The lectures analyses crucial economic policy issues of oil and gas exporting countries such as current account imbalances (lecture 7), oil bill recycling, sterilization and Dutch disease (lecture 8), issues of oil and gas price driven economic development (lecture 9), and the threat of crisis (lecture 10). The international macroeconomic context for oil and gas exporting countries are discussed in lectures 11, 12, and 13.
