Publication Description :
This paper deals with the interaction of inflation rate, interest rate, and remittance with exchange rate in Bangladesh. The study is confined to Bangladesh and study period is from January 2004 to December 2013. Regression and correlation analysis are done with the help of Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) to analyze whether the exchange rate is influenced by the changing pattern of inflation rate, interest rate, and remittance or not. Here exchange rate is considered as a dependent variable and inflation rate, interest rate, and remittance are as independent variables. N-way analysis is conducted to find out whether the relationship is strong or not. Causal research approach is used to accomplish this analysis. Three-month FDR is used as interest rate to find out the relationship with exchange rate. The result shows the strong and positive relationship of interest rate and remittance with exchange rate. Inflation rate also shows positive but weak relationship with exchange rate because if inflation changes, exchange rate does not change by the same changing pattern.
