Effective coordination between monetary and fiscal easing, though already in place has to be strengthened. The results are in sharp contrast to those of the traditional Mundell-Fleming and Dornbusch models: after the monetary (fiscal) policy is relaxed, the home currency depreciates (appreciates) for a substantial period of time, and the aggregate demand first expands (contracts) then gradually returns toward its original path.

Contractionary monetary policy will shift aggregate demand to the left from AD0 to AD1, thus leading to a new equilibrium (Ep) at the potential GDP level of output. Conversely, if an economy is producing at a quantity of output above its potential GDP, a contractionary monetary policy can reduce the inflationary pressures for a rising price level.

Although monetary policy is not able to influence aggregate demand per se, it can have an impact on the level of investment when wrongly conducted, e.g., as the rate of interest is either kept at.

The shift up of AD causes us to move along the aggregate supply (AS) curve, causing a rise in both real GDP and the price level.

The paper suggests that a fiscal stimulus can and must be designed so as to target both aggregate demand and potential output. Total investment is considered the key-variable in this approach and both private and public investment should be furthered, to the extent that the public capital stock is a driver of growth, directly entering in the.

Although monetary and fiscal policies use different policy instruments, they are closely related in terms of achieving certain.

The discussion in the previous section about the use of fiscal policy to close gaps suggests that economies can be easily stabilized by government actions to shift the aggregate demand curve.

However, as we discovered with monetary policy in the previous chapter, government attempts at stabilization are fraught with difficulties. Of course we are discussing here fiscal policy coordination that aims at demand management and not fiscal policy actions aimed at putting the fiscal accounts of a country in order.
