Monetary-Fiscal Policy Interactions under Implementable Monetary Policy Rules




This paper examines the implications of forward- and backward-looking monetary policy rules in an environment with monetary-fiscal interactions. We find that the unique stationary rational expectations equilibrium (REE) is always non-Ricardian under simple implementable monetary policy rules. Copyright (c) 2008 The Ohio State University.
