Exchange rate protection

The manipulation of the exchange rate so as to increase the domestic prices of, and demand for, domestically produced goods. Since an undervalued currency stimulates demand for all domestically produced tradable goods, this form of protection, unlike tariff protection, can only be provided to the tradable sector as a whole, not to individual industries.
