  • The Benefits of International Policy Coordination Revisitedby Jaromir Benes; Michael Kumhof; Douglas Laxton; Dirk Muir; Susanna Mursula

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    This paper uses two of the IMF's DSGE models to simulate the benefits of international fiscal and macroprudential policy coordination. The key argument is that these two policies are similar in that, unlike monetary policy, they have long-run effects on the level of GDP that need to be traded off with short-run effects on the volatility of GDP. Furthermore,... more...
