Modelling the Fiscal Reaction Functions of the GIPS based on State-Varying Thresholds
We extend previous literature on fiscal policy sustainability by introducing non-linear fiscal reaction functions with endogenously estimated state-varying thresholds to capture the behaviour of fiscal policy authorities during “good” and “bad” times. These thresholds vary with the level of debt, the economic cycle and an index of financial pressure.
