Assessing the effects of monetary and fiscal policy
This paper has two objectives: the first is to jointly analyse monetary and fiscal policy with a structural VAR model, evaluate the dynamic impact of policy shocks on U.S. output and prices and the contributions of these two sources to fluctuations in these variables. The second objective is to investigate if and how the effects of monetary policy are altered by the inclusion of fiscal policy variables in a benchmark monetary VAR. It is found that both monetary policy and fiscal policy have small effects on output and the price level and that neither of these shocks are important sources of fluctuations in either variable. The magnitude of the responses of output and prices to a monetary policy shock and the contribution of these shocks are reduced significantly once fiscal policy is introduced.
