Abstract

We show that the results of the Constant-Market-Shares analysis are influenced by the - arbitrary - choice of the currency in which the data have been expressed. The so-called static competition effect is not influenced by the exchange rate. The Dutch export performance in 1989-1991 disaggregated by 17 OECD countries and five product groups serves as an empirical illustration of our findings.
