Debt Consolidation and Financial Stability
We compare three alternative post-crisis public debt consolidation policies (respectively based on expenditure cuts, labour tax or consumption tax increases) in their effects on key macro variables and on bank stability. Labor tax-based policies attain a rapid debt adjustment and low intertemporal debt costs, but at the expense of higher oscillations in bank leverage and risk. Expenditure based and consumption tax-based strategies perform better and similarly between themselves.
