Strategic Monetary and Fiscal Policy Interactions: An Empirical Investigation

By Matteo Fragetta and Tatiana Kirsanova


This paper identifies leadership regimes in monetary-fiscal policy interactions in three countries, the UK, the US and Sweden. We specify a small-scale, structural general equilibrium model of an open economy and estimate it using Bayesian methods. We assume that the authorities can act strategically in a non-cooperative policy game, and compare different leadership regimes. We find that the model of fiscal leadership gives the best fit for the UK and Sweden, while in the US the Nash or non-strategic regime dominates.Monetary and Fiscal Policy, Leadership, Macroeconomic Stabilisation, Bayesian Estimation
