Bhattacharyya Ranajoy, Indian Institute Of Foreign Trade

Categorizing a sample of 55 less developed countries into upper middle, lower middle and low income countries we show that the foreign exchange constraint has relaxed due to globalization in upper middle and lower middle income developing countries while the opposite is true for low income countries.
