Fiscal Shocks and the Exchange Rate in a Generalized Redux Model

type="main" xml:lang="en"> This paper studies how the interaction between the monetary policy regime and the degree of home bias in public consumption affects the exchange-rate response to fiscal shocks in a generalized version of the Redux model of Obstfeld and Rogoff ( ). We show that the joint presence of home bias in public consumption and endogenous monetary policy overturns the result of the Redux model implying an exchange-rate appreciation in response to an expansionary fiscal shock.
