Monetary and Fiscal Rules for Emerging Economies
This project grew out of a three-year collaboration, September 2008 – September 2011 financially supported by the Foreign Common-Wealth Office and led by Ila Patnaik and Ajay Shah of the National Institute for Public Finance Policy (NIPFP), New Delhi. That project developed an estimated closed-economy DSGE model of the Indian economy, with particular attention paid to incorporating features relevant to the Indian economy such as informality and financial frictions. In this way we are contributing to as yet a small subset of the DSGE modelling literature that focuses on emerging economies.
The current research intends to extend this study to small open economies with a large oil-exporting sector (such as Nigeria) and to countries also with an emerging financial sector (such as Qatar). As with other projects, the implications of these specific features for the conduct of monetary, fiscal and banking regulatory policy will be studied.
