An interpretation of this dichotomy in consumer behaviour is provided via the debt-illusion hypothesis. Ricardian equivalence requires assumptions that have been seriously challenged. The advantage of the latter so-called Euler equation approach is that, if we are prepared to assume that preferences are additively separable over time, a possibility opens for a direct estimation of the parameters of an intertemporal utility function, without requiring explicit solution of the dynamic optimization problem.

Ricardian equivalence – Wikipedia

Barro, Robert J, The liquidity problem is attributable to a number of factors, among ricardienbe capital market imperfections is probably the most prominent. InBarro offered a number of defenses against various other critiques. Thus, pooling time-series and cross-section data emerges as a most sensible procedure, provided that sufficient allowance is made for obvious differences among the sample countries, on the basis of both the debt ratio and per capita rricardienne.

The empirical analysis in the present study centers on a data set containing 49 countries and running from to See for example Dalamagas ] where an explicit rational expectations opti mizing model of consumer behaviour is utilized for sample of six industrialized coun tries Among the major findings of the study is that individuals make meir consumption decisions with without regard to the future tax implications of current expansion in public debt at high low levels of government indebtedness.

Thus, an attempt is ricardieenne to restrict the flow of information concerning consumer ricadienne from one country to the other. Thus, the representative household is assumed to have a stationary utility function that is defined over a composite’ good’, as shown below: Our results suggest that the REH applies to Moroccan economy, since private saving compensates a big fraction i.


With quarterly series the highest order lag is usually set at 16 The specific gravity of consumption with respect to say taxes is the reciprocal of the FPE in the bivariate consumption-taxes equation The variable with the ridardienne spe cific gravity is added to the consumption equation with the lag order from the relevant bivariate equation similar procedure is followed every time an additional variable is added to the equation.

All variables are expressed in real per capita units and are measured in constant dollars1. Liste des illustrations Table 1.

The results indicate that the substitution of debt for taxes increases reduces consumption in solvent debt-ridden countries, irrespective of the level of per capita income. Thus, the relationship to be first considered is. Using lagged variables in a pooled cross-section time-series VAR model, however, means in essence that agents in each country use information from the other 48 sample countries in order to formulate their expectations as to the economic developments in their own country.

If differences in the gicardienne of public debt can be shown to lie at the heart of excess consumption sensitivity, we could expect more sharp departures from the predictions of Ricardian equivalence in debt-ridden than in solvent countries.

In equivqlence countries, the substitution of debt for taxes, at a given stream of government spending, has a tendency to reduce consumption expenditure, so that public deficits appear to be more than offset by increased private savings. A Search for Synthesis in Economic Theory.

Ricardian equivalence

Journal of Monetary Economics 20 2: Indeed, the values of these coefficients convey the message that simply saving the amounts out of tax reductions to pay for future taxes is not considered to be sufficient to cope with the expected deterioration in income levels.


In addition, a Ricardian agent recognizes the future tax obligations implicit in current debt issuance, whereas a Keynesian agent is prompted to expand his spending after each debt-financed tax cut.

This is not, however, the case with consumers in developing countries, who are shown to react with little positive or negative regard to changes in the size of the government expenditure programme. The solution of 8 in terms of C provides an approximation to the Euler equation for consumption. This is done by using a two-step procedure: Of course, the present study is not the first one in doing comparative work on REH and in bringing forward such a dichotomy in consumer behaviour.

Martin Feldstein argued in that Barro ignored economic and population growth.

Journal of Economic Perspectives 3, Thus the equivalence theorem should not be separated from the assumptions on which it is based.

Buchanan also criticized Barro’s model, equivaalence that “[t]his is an age-old question in public finance theory”, one already mooted by Ricardo and elaborated upon by de Viti.

Introduction to Multiple Time Series Analysis. In other words, Ricardian equivalence does not mean that any countercyclical efforts will fail, but outlines the necessary conditions for that failure and, naturally, for success at the same time.

You can equivalejce correct errors and omissions. Estimation of Euler equations for the consumer’s stochastic dynamic optimization problem provided evidence that can be summarized as follows:.

Economics Letters 69, Therefore, actually, new classical macroeconomics highlights the conditions under which fiscal policy can be ricardiwnne and not the inefficiency of fiscal policy.
