This paper studies the behavior of the Mexican-US bilateral real exchange rate from 1955 to 1996. Evidence suggests that this real exchange rate is cointegrated with the Mexican and US relative price of nontradables. This cointegrating relationship provides a natural basis for measuring long run real exchange rate misalignment. © Elsevier Science B.V.
