Macroeconomic Policy Interaction Under Flexible Exchange Rates: A Two-Country Model
Australian National University.
1983 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper analyses macroeconomic policy interaction in a flexible exchange rate model. Each country has a short-run non-vertical Phillips curve, and there is positive transmission of economic expansion through the terms of trade. The product real wage is distinguished from the income real wage, the latter also depending on the terms of trade, and a reduction in the former increasing employment. Inflation brings the actual income real wage below the target real wage. Non-co-coperative solutions (Nash and Stackelberg) are shown to have deflationary biases relative to Pareto-efficient outcomes which could be obtained by policy co-ordination. The special properties of the balanced expansion (constant terms of trade) path are explored. An important qualification to the whole analysis, taking into account intertemporal effects, is discussed at the end.
