As a reflection of both strong persistence of debt-to-GDP ratios and correlation of respective innovations with governments’ primary surpluses, standard t-tests in policy reaction functions show actual significance levels that are up to five times larger than their nominal reference. Adopting size-controlled inference by means of Monte Carlo-based and asymptotic Bonferroni critical values. - government gives tax cut to household and issues bond to cover cost of tax cut - government then raises taxes in second period to pay for deficit - Ricardian Proposition says that household wealth will not change, nor would its consumption or savings decisions because household will foresee tax increase and not change behavior.

scrutiny and approval mechanisms as the government budget and the government budget, which should cover only their financial transactions with the government and not their transactions with the rest of the economy. 4 However, a financial approach must also be developed for the public sector as a whole. Thus, the budget can show in an analytical. The government budget deficit is financed by selling government bonds. The government must sell enough bonds so that the proceeds will pay for the current spending it cannot pay for with tax revenue (this fact is called the ‘government budget constraint,’ which just says that the government must obtain the money.

Tax and spending decisions at different dates are linked. Although governments can borrow or lend in a given year, a government’s total spending over time must be matched with revenues. When a government runs a deficit, it typically borrows to finance it.

This intertemporal dimension creates a rich set of possible impacts of routine macro policy actions, as current or future policies can be expected to adjust to satisfy the government budget, along with other equilibrium conditions.

Taking the government budget constraint seriously can overturn some widely held beliefs about policy by: 2.

The intertemporal budget constraint, however, imposes restrictions only on the long-run relationship between expenditures and revenues so that almost any short-run deficit path is consistent with a budget balanced in present value terms.

This makes it difficult to test the hypothesis that the government's intertemporal budget is balanced. The Government Budget Constraint As we mentioned in the previous lecture, government deficits (i.e. the difference between spending and tax revenues) imply an increase in the nation’s public debt.

Debts and deficits are linked through an equation called the government budget constraint. Of course, a complete model would include the government budget constraint and a tax policy rule, for example dz = ~ db + def, (dp + db)eb + dm.

We undertake tests of whether long term data from the U.S. and U.K. are consistent with the intertemporal government budget constraint and the intertemporal external borrowing constraint being satisfied in expected value terms, both individually and simultaneously.
