摘要:A prominent debate over macroeconomic policy centers on the question of whether a government should run a balanced budget. Critics argue that a balanced-budget fiscal policy rule with endogenous income tax rates can generate aggregate instability due to self-fulfilling expectations (e.g., Schmitt-Grohé and Uribe 1997). Advocates defend that persistent budget deficits may cause problems for both the economy and the government, and replacing income taxes by consumption taxes might be a right way to go. A clear understanding of the associated costs against its benefits is of critical importance in the consideration, design, or operation of a balanced-budget fiscal policy. This project aims to show, both analytically and numerically, whether beliefs-driven aggregate instability associated with a balanced-budget taxation is a problem in 1) a small open economy integrated in the world asset and goods
markets; 2) a closed economy with home production goods; 3) a closed economy with endogenous capacity utilization.
