    [eng] The Euro Zone’s Policy Mix – an Evaluation of the Impact of Monetary and Fiscal Shocks . by Sophie Garcia and Adrien Verdelhan . This paper presents a simultaneous study of fiscal and monetary shocks in the euro zone using a structural VAR model covering line of business, prices, an average real short-term interest rate and an average budget balance. The time taken for fiscal and monetary changes to affectGDPappears to be similar. The effect of a 100-basis-point cut in the three-month real interest rate is similar to the short-run effect of a 0.6-point GDP increase in the average government deficit. A structural budget deficit reflecting past discretionary fiscal measures is calculated and a policy mix indicator is constructed to better assess the euro zone’s overall economic policy trend. . [fre] Cet article propose l'étude simultanée des chocs budgétaires et monétaires, à l'échelle de la zone euro, à l'aide d''un modèle VAR structurel regroupant l'activité, les prix, un taux d'intérêt réel de court terme et un solde budgétaire moyens. Les délais de transmission des impulsions budgétaires et monétaires sur le PIB apparaissent semblables. Une baisse de 100 points de base du choc de taux d''intérêt réel à 3 mois a un effet comparable à l'effet à court terme d'une augmentation de 0,6 point de . PIB du choc de déficit public moyen. Le calcul d’un déficit budgétaire structurel, reflétant les mesures budgétaires discrétionnaires passées, et la construction d'un indicateur du policy-mix permettent de mieux apprécier l'orientation globale des politiques économiques de la zone euro.
