In an economy with wage-setting unions where the government has gains from redistribution, we analyze the incentive of incumbent politicians to implement monetary discipline (e.g., by joining a monetary union) against the adoption of fiscal reforms, or deregulation in product markets. We show that monetary discipline can be a "substitute" both for better (i.e., less distortionary) fiscal policies and for deregulation in product markets.

Abstract

In an economy with wage-setting unions where the government has gains from redistribution, we analyze the incentive of incumbent politicians to implement monetary discipline (e.g., by joining a monetary union) against the adoption of fiscal reforms, or deregulation in product markets. We show that monetary discipline can be a "substitute" both for better (i.e., less distortionary) fiscal policies and for deregulation in product markets.
