German unification and the European monetary system: a quantitative analysis
Lewis S. Alexander and
No 421, International Finance Discussion Papers from Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (U.S.)
This paper uses a macroeconomic model with rational expectations to analyze issues related to German unification. A principal focus of the paper is the effect of unification on member countries of the European Monetary System. Under certain conditions, German unification has a contractionary effect on other EMS countries. We explore the implications for EMS and other countries of alternative German fiscal and monetary policies.
