Externality in labor supply and government spending

Economics Letters, 2011, vol. 112, issue 3, 273-276

Abstract: Standard business cycle models face difficulties generating (i) government spending multipliers exceeding unity and (ii) stabilizing effects of government size. Using a simple model with externality in labor supply, we show that a sufficient degree of complementarity between aggregate and private labor supplies is key to reproducing these stylized facts.
