On the size of fiscal multipliers: A counterfactual analysis
Frank Westermann , 2014, vol. 123, issue 1, pages 26-32
Economics Letters Abstract:
We point out that fiscal multipliers derived from SVAR-models include the predicted future path of policy instruments. After the initial shock, net taxes and government expenditures react to each other and are autocorrelated. In a counterfactual simulation, we report fiscal multipliers that abstract from these dynamic responses.
