Ramsey Optimal Policy versus Multiple Equilibria with Fiscal and Monetary Interactions

Jean-Bernard Chatelain () and Kirsten Ralf

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We consider a frictionless constant endowment economy based on Leeper (1991). In this economy, it is shown that, under an ad-hoc monetary rule and an ad-hoc fiscal rule, there are two equilibria. One has active monetary policy and passive fiscal policy, while the other has passive monetary policy and active fiscal policy. We consider an extended set-up in which the policy maker minimizes a loss function under quasi-commitment, as in Schaumburg and Tambalotti (2007). Under this formulation there exists a unique Ramsey equilibrium, with an interest rate peg and a passive fiscal policy.
