We use the exchange rate, consumer price indexes of Japan and the United States, and industrial production indexes (seasonally adjusted value) of Japan and the United States. The exchange rate is expressed per US dollar. The log of the nominal exchange rate ( et ), the log of the real exchange rate ( rt ), and the log of the relative output ( yt ) are used in the empirical analysis. The log-level real exchange rate, rt , may be expressed as follows: rt = et + pUS − pt JAPAN , t (1) where pt JAPAN is the logarithm of the price level in Japan); pUS is the logarithm of the price t level in the United states.
