ABDELMALACK, Camila Ciss  and  CAMPOS, Camila F. S.. CPI Exchange Rate Pass-Through Decomposition and Distribution Margins: The Case of Brazil versus Advanced Economies. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2020, vol.74, n.1, pp.1-22.  Epub May 08, 2020. ISSN 1806-9134.

We analyze the channels through which the Exchange rate affects final consumer prices. We compare advanced countries with one emerging economy, Brazil, to determine the corresponding exchange rate pass-through and its channels. A key aspect to the exchange rate pass-through is the relative importance of tradables in the consumption

basket as well as the share of imported inputs. Since non-tradables are usually cheaper in developing economies, the share of non-tradeables is smaller in theses countries. We illustrate this scenario using data from Brazil vis-a-vis a group of advanced economies.
