Abstract

In this paper we investigate whether there is a global and dynamic linkage between Monetary and Fiscal Policy in a global framework by using GVAR technique. Our results confirm that there is a significant connection between long-term nominal interest rate and fiscal balance in some industrial economies. We find while a global common factor is observed for interest rate among major economies, there is no such a global trend for fiscal balance. Furthermore, a negative fiscal balance shock in U.S. influences both long and short run interest rate and other core macroeconomic variables, significantly.
