A Test of the Cost and Benefits of Policy Intervention
AbstractUsing a Keynesian model of regulated Brownian motion with an indogenous producer/investor term, clark and Jokung (1998) showed that anticipated macroeconomic intervention can be effective in reducing fluctuations in economic policy. They also showed that the price of reduced volatility due to imperfect macroeconomic intervention is a reduction in levels of output. In this paper we use panel data for 64 countries over the period 1970-1995 to test these propositions.
