Abstract:     
This paper investigates the dynamic effect of government spending in an optimizing monetary model of open economy with capital immobility and fixed exchange rates. It is found that a rise in government spending will always lead to a reduction in real interest rates on impact. Moreover, real interest rates can be lower during periods of high temporary government spending. This result is conformable with the observation of low real interest rates during wars.
