Abstract

This study aimed to analyze effects of the exchange rate adopted in Brazil as well as pulp and paper prices in the U.S. on pulp and paper prices in Brazilian currency, from April 2003 to February 2009. To attain that, the shift-share method was used, and analysis results indicated that price variations in Brazilian currency were more strongly influenced by exchange rate variations than by variations in dollar prices, demonstrating the importance of the exchange rate policy adopted by Brazil in the behavior of pulp and paper prices.
