An Optimizing Approach to Factor and Production Subsidies in a Small Open Economy with Classical Unemployment
1984 (English)Report (Other academic)
This paper presents a two-period model of a small open economy with a rigid real wage and classical unemployment. The optimal levels of three common aggregate-supply policies - employment, investment and production subsidies - and their effects on social welfare, the government budget and the balance of payments, are analysed and contrasted. The costs and benefits of firm- and sector-specific subsidies are also considered.
