Clean floats are a result of laissez-faire or free market economics.. Clean float is, theoretically, the best way to go. exchange rate system – the Gold Standard Era, the Bretton Woods Era. Contemporary developments reinforce the centrality of exchange rates to economic trends, from the creation of an Economic and Monetary Union in Europe to the currency crises that have swept the developed, developing, and transitional economies.

      The establishment of the present regime of floating exchange rates of major currencies, which began in March , has created a number of policy options for the less developed countries (LDCs). Should LDCs allow their currencies to fluctuate due to market forces, or should they fix the value of their currencies to some major cur­. Many economists believe floating exchange rates are the best possible exchange rate regime because these regimes automatically adjust to economic circumstances. These regimes enable a country to dampen the impact of shocks and foreign business cycles, and to preempt the possibility of having a balance of payments crisis.
