The rate of exchange is not the price at which foreign currency is bought and sold; it is nothing but a numeraire linking the domestic and foreign-currency prices of foreign bonds. This problem disappears if we not only allow domestic agents to hold foreign debt but also foreign agents to hold domestic debt. The volume of foreign debt held by domestic agents need no longer be constant in that case, even if there are no net capital inflows or outflows: the volume of foreign debt held by domestic agents can increase if they succeed in selling domestic debt to foreign agents and decrease if they buy back domestic debt.

29) This means that, if the forward rate of the euro in terms of yen equals the expected future spot rate of the euro in terms of yen, it generally cannot also be true that the forward rate of the yen in terms of euro equals the expected future spot rate of the yen in terms of euro. This phenomenon is called Siegel’s paradox. We will not provide a formal proof; a numerical example may be more helpful to grasp the point. Consider agents attaching a 30 per cent probability to a value of 125 for the future spot rate of the euro in terms of yen, a 20 per cent probability to a value of 160 and a 50 per cent probability to a value of 200.

Total wealth increases and portfolio balance at unchanged interest rates and an unchanged exchange rate would require higher volumes of domestic and foreign bonds. However, bond supplies are fixed. An excess supply of domestic money and an excess demand for domestic bonds and foreign bonds ensue. The rate of interest on domestic bonds is driven down, but the foreign rate of interest and foreign bond prices are given for domestic economic agents.
