Abstract [en]

In 1994 the Mexican fixed exchage rate regime was abandoned. Three years later the financial turmoil in East Asia was a fact. Some of the countries in East Asia abandoned their fixed exchange rate regime. What was different between the collapse of the Mexican currency crisis and the East Asian currency crises? The finally speculative attack, which led to the abandonment of the fixed exchange rate regime, against the Mexican peso and the currencies in East Asia depended on different sources. We use two speculation theories and statistic data according some economic fundamentals. Our conclusion is that the Mexican crisis was more of a typical balance of payment crisis, while the East Asian crises were more of a self-fulfilling kind.
