Financial integration and macroeconomic adjustments in a monetary union

Vincent Duwicquet () and Jacques Mazier

Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, 2010, vol. 33, issue 2, 333-370

Abstract: In a monetary union, such as the euro zone, adjustments facing asymmetric evolutions are more difficult due to fixed intra-European exchange rates. Well-integrated capital markets, with portfolio diversification and intrazone credit, would constitute a powerful adjustment mechanism, according to the "international risk-sharing" approach. A different approach is adopted, based on a "stock-flow consistent" model of a monetary union along the lines of Godley and Lavoie (2007). Two results can be underlined. Holding foreign assets has a stabilizing role, but the capital income stabilizing coefficient seems small. By contrast, intrazone credit seems to have no specific stabilization effects.
