Marshall-Lerner Condition

The Marshall-Lerner condition predicts the circumstances in which a fall in the exchange rate improves the current account of the balance of payments. A devaluation of a currency improves the BoP only if the sum of price elasticities of demand for imports & exports are greater than one. (Condition is that: PedX + PedM > 1).
