This paper examines the long-run and short - run effects of depre c i a t i o n / devaluation for major European Union countries (Germ a n y, France, the Unit ed Kingdom, and Italy) over the 1975-1997 period. The approach is based on cointegration techniques proposed by Johansen [1988] and uses quarterly data. The empirical results indicate the existence of a positive relationship between the exchange rate and the trade balance for each country although long-ru n e ffects are rather moderate. According to the short - run analysis, there is a find ing of a J-curve for Italy and the United Kingdom. The costs of re l i n q u i s h i n g individual exchange rates may be rather small for major EU countries. (JEL Classification: F31, F41)
