Stagflation as a Consequence of an Expansionary Monetary or Fiscal Policy under Flexible Exchange Rates
1978 (English)Report (Other academic)
It is common belief that an expansionary monetary or fiscal policy in an open pr closed economy will lead to a rise in product prices and/or ouput and employment. It is shown in this paper that under flexible exchange rates such a policy will be generally effective, i.e. change some or all important real domestic variables, and that it may even be stagflationary, i.e. depress output and employment at home and abroad while pushing up prices.
