The Emerging New Theory of Economic Policy

Nicola Acocella and Giovanni Di Bartolomeo ()

Economia Internazionale / International Economics, 2008, vol. 61, issue 2-3, 135-150

Abstract: This paper outlines the evolution of the theory of economic policy from the classical contributions of Ragnar Frisch, Ian Tinbergen, Bent Hansen, Henri Theil to recent work in the field of strategic interaction. The new, emerging theory of economic policy, albeit rooted in the classical paradigm, is consistent with rational expectations, and is particularly important for model building, as it states general conditions for the effectiveness of economic policy and the existence of equilibrium.
