Devaluation and Exports

The paper 'Currency Devaluation and Exports' by Sugata Marjit, Byasdeb Dasgupta and Sandip Mitra (April 29) makes interesting reading but has certain shortcomings.

One, there is repeated reference to a paper of 1999 by the three authors claiming that they "analysed the impact of devaluation on actual export performance of India" but the references do not list it. The omission is a serious one as the three authors say that the present paper "is based on a formal model developed" in the earlier paper. EPW's editors should have detected the omission.
