ABSTRACT
The exchange rate policies form a critical part of an economy's monetary policy and it has significant impact on the overall macroeconomic performance of a country. In this paper, we attempt to explore the rationale of a pegged exchange rate regime at KSA followed by its potential benefits and disadvantages. We also investigate the possible impact of this pegging on inflation and discuss the potential for a shift towards an alternate regime. It has been observed that SAMA's monetary policy seems to be ineffective in controlling inflation at KSA which is a natural consequence of having fixed peg regime, however, SAR-USD peg is quite successful in achieving its stated objectives of economy stabilization including the planned growth and curtailment of inflation by linking it with the USD inflation.
