Fiscal Spending, Relative-Price Dynamics, and Welfare in a World Economy
This paper analyzes the dynamics of a 2 × 2 × 2 Heckscher-Ohlin model where foreign asset holdings and capital accumulation are independently determined by optimizing agents. Each country has two production sectors, both of whose products are used for consumption, and an investment sector, which uses one of the two commodities to accumulate real capital. In this setting we examine the effects of fiscal spending on the equilibrium paths of interest rates and prices and each country's lifetime utility. The welfare effect is found to consist of the static terms-of-trade effect, the dynamic foreign asset effect and the direct income-loss effect. Copyright Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2005..
