A further section goes on to examine the simulated effects of changes of fiscal and monetary policy stance on output, employment, inflation and public debt over the medium term ...

Le document examine ensuite les implications d’une croissance moindre sur le solde budgétaire et la dette publique, ainsi que les changements de "policy mix" qui pourraient s’avérer nécessaires pour rétablir les objectifs de politique budgétaire annoncés, tout en limitant les dommages pour l’ensemble des objectifs de politique économique. Une autre section présente les effets simulés des changements dans les orientations de politiques fiscale et monétaire, sur la production, l’emploi, l’inflation et la dette publique dans une perspective de ...
