Event description

Description


CANCELLED

Please note that the seminar titled “US Monetary and Fiscal Policies – Conflict or Cooperation?” scheduled to take place in the ESRI at 4pm on Thursday 19 April has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.


Speaker: Campbell Leith, Professor of Macroeconomics, University of Glasgow

Seminar Topic: The speaker will present a paper which evaluates how monetary and fiscal policies have evolved since the 1950s up until the financial crisis.

The study re-examines three broad trends in macroeconomic policy outcomes - the fall in the debt to GDP ratio and rise in inflation prior to the 1980s, the subsequent disinflation and rising debt to GDP ratio during the 1980s, and the stabilisation of the debt to GDP ratio from the mid-1990s up until the financial crisis.

The research shows how these trends are driven by shifts in monetary and fiscal policy, and explores how these trends and the underpinning fiscal financing mix would have differed under alternative policy configurations.
