In the case of the safe-haven effect, domestic and foreign titles differ as to political risk and CIP no longer holds. Residents of a country may fear high future taxes. They may also hedge against future changes of government that may bring confiscation of their property, or they may prefer to hold funds abroad not only to evade taxes but also to escape the police. In general, the safe-haven effect does not so much concern a comparison between rates of return that induces people to invest abroad as a wish to keep the principal safely out of the hands of the domestic authorities or a fear of disturbances.
Against the risk there is the mathematical expectation of a higher yield. We see that with a risk premium the spot exchange rate moves in such a way that the expected return from unhedged investments in the United Kingdom becomes higher than from investments in the United States and from hedged investments in the UK. The risk premium is measured by the difference between the expected future spot rate and the current forward rate. It can also be seen as the expected profit from buying forward foreign exchange and selling the foreign-exchange spot upon delivery (note that definitions of the risk premium vary: sometimes it is defined as the forward rate minus the expected future spot rate rather than the other way round).
Sticky nominal prices provide another possible explanation. For instance, if prices are pre-set in the buyer’s currency, a change in the nominal exchange rate will also make the real exchange rate change. If monetary-policy changes do not immediately affect prices we have another case of sticky prices. 3 Dornbusch’s Sticky-Price Monetary Model Dornbusch’s exchange-rate dynamics model (Dornbusch 1976, 1980, ch. 11; Bilson 1979) differs from the flexprice monetary model in that prices do not adjust immediately after a shock.
