The fiscal theory of the price level has challenged the conventional view that monetary factors drive prices and exchange rates and has also provided a rationale for fiscal restrictions in a monetary union. This paper reviews the main results and compelling criticisms of this theory, analyzing the effects of monetary and fiscal shocks under a fiscal regime. We pay special attention to the determinants of the exchange rate and to the ways to eliminate the exchange rate indeterminacy that arise under interest rate peg.
