  The Tobin Tax and Exchange Rate Stability - Finance & Development - June 1996
Under this scheme, an exchange rate would be allowed to move freely within a band, but overshooting the band would result in a tax on the discrepancy between the market exchange rate and the closest margin of the band.
Exchange rates would thus be kept within a target range through taxation rather than central bank intervention or the depletion of international reserves.
It can be argued that a tax on foreign exchange transactions should ideally operate with a zero rate (or, equivalently, a zero base) when the exchange rate for the currencies in a given transaction is in equilibrium and that the tax rate should increase in accordance with the deviation from equilibrium.

 Testimony: China's Exchange Rate Regime
It is the overall current and capital-account positions that matter for judging the extent of exchange rate misalignment—not bilateral trade balances or components of the current and capital accounts.
China is justifiably concerned that if it floated the exchange rate and opened its capital markets today, the weakness of the domestic financial system could generate large-scale capital flight and sharp currency depreciation in response to bad news.
It is not useful to identify large-scale, prolonged, exchange market intervention in one direction, and behavior of the exchange rate inconsistent with underlying fundamentals, as implicit pointers of a "wrong" exchange rate and then do little when these pointers signal a problem.

BEIJING (AP) - China should ease exchange rate controls to let its currency depreciate and shift the basis of its growth to domestic consumer demand, the head of the International Monetary Fund said Friday.
De Rato said allowing a more market-driven exchange rate would give financial authorities more flexibility in setting interest rates to curb investment.
