A Continuous-Time Model of the Term Structure of Interest Rates with Fiscal-Monetary Policy Interactions
AbstractWe study the term structure implications of the fiscal theory of price level determination. We introduce the intertemporal budget constraint of the government in a general equilibrium model in continuous time. Fiscal policy is set according to a simple rule whereby taxes react proportionally to real debt. We show how to solve for the prices of real and nominal zero coupon bonds.
