The paper examines the effect of exchange rate changes on consumer prices in Ghana using vector autoregression (VAR) models.

Our empirical results indicate a low but significant pass-through in the short run. We argue that the findings reflect the impact of increased openness and tighter monetary policy pursue by the central bank over the period
