Fiscal Shocks and The Real Exchange Rate

This is a joint paper with Philip Lane.

Abstract: We estimate the real exchange rate impact of shocks to government spending for a panel of member countries of the euro area. Our key finding is that the impact differs across different types of government spending, with shocks to public investment generating larger and more persistent real appreciation than shocks to government consumption. Within the latter category, we also show that the impact of shocks to the wage component of government consumption is larger than for shocks to the non-wage component. Finally, we highlight the different exchange rate responses between this group and a group of countries with floating exchange rates.

It was an absolute alarming crisis in my view, nevertheless encountering this expert manner you handled the issue forced me to weep over delight. I’m happier for this advice and hope that you realize what a great job you were accomplishing teaching the others all through your webblog. Probably you’ve never encountered all of us.
