La pregunta que se aborda en este trabajo es qué sesgos de política económica pueden ocurrir cuando las autoridades monetarias y las fiscales tienen preferencias distintas en cuanto a la importancia de cerrar las brechas de producción e inflación generadas por shocks adversos. Para cumplir con dicho objetivo, el presente estudio utiliza un modelo de teoría de juegos en el cual las autoridades fiscales y monetarias interactúan para estabilizar la economía, teniendo diferentes preferencias y controlando distintos instrumentos de política. Modelada ya sea como un equilibrio tipo Nash o tipo Stackelberg, la ausencia de coordinación de políticas macroeconómicas implica que un aumento en la divergencia de preferencias entre las autoridades fiscales y monetarias, lleva, ceteris paribus, a mayores déficit fiscales (el instrumento de política de la autoridad fiscal) y a mayores tasas de interés real (el instrumento del Banco Central). La sección empírica de este trabajo provee evidencia a favor de esta conclusión en una muestra de panel de 19 países industrializados con información anual para el período 1970-94. El estudio concluye que reformas de segunda generación que faciliten la coordinación de políticas pueden aliviar los sesgos de excesivo conservadurismo de la autoridad monetaria y liberalismo de la autoridad fiscal.
