slide 2 The Mundell-Fleming model Key assumption: Small open economy with perfect capital mobility. r = r* Goods market equilibrium – the IS* curve: ( ) ( ) ( ) * Y C Y T I r G NX e = - + + + where e = nominal exchange rate = foreign currency per unit domestic currency

slide 3 The  IS*  curve:  Goods market eq’m The IS* curve is drawn for a given value of r * . Intuition for the slope: Y e IS * ( ) ( ) ( ) * Y C Y T I r G NX e = - + + + e NX Y ⇒ ↑ ⇒ ↑

slide 4 The  LM*  curve:  Money market eq’m The LM* curve is drawn for a given value of r * . is vertical because: given r* , there is only one value of Y that equates money demand with supply, regardless of e . Y e LM * ( , ) * M P L r Y =

slide 6 In a system of floating exchange rates , e is allowed to fluctuate in response to changing economic conditions. In contrast, under fixed exchange rates , the central bank trades domestic for foreign currency at a predetermined price. Next, policy analysis – first, in a floating exchange rate system then, in a fixed exchange rate system

slide 8 Lessons about fiscal policy In a small open economy with perfect capital mobility, fiscal policy cannot affect real GDP. “Crowding out” closed economy: Fiscal policy crowds out investment by causing the interest rate to rise. small open economy: Fiscal policy crowds out net exports by causing the exchange rate to appreciate.
