Fiscal Policy and the Real Exchange Rate
AbstractThis paper reconsiders some conventional notions about fiscal policy under flexible exchange rates using an extended version of the well-known Dornbusch "overshooting" model. Three widely-held views are challenged: 1) the Mundell-Fleming result that fiscal policy is ineffective under flexible exchange rates; 2) that real shocks (including fiscal policy) do not cause exchange rate overshooting; and 3) that real shocks are not important in explaining high exchange rate variability. In our model, output is affected by fiscal policy in the short and long run.
