      Under the base case scenario, the interest rate is 3%, which rises to 5% in the “interest rate shock” scenario. In order to be symmetric with the weaknesses of DSGE models, which ignore fiscal policy in order to analyse monetary policy, this model ignores monetary policy (other than the interest income channel) in order to analyse fiscal. A problem arises here. An expansionary fiscal policy, with tax cuts or spending increases, is intended to increase aggregate demand. If an expansionary fiscal policy also causes higher interest rates, then firms and households are discouraged from borrowing and spending (as occurs with tight monetary policy), thus reducing aggregate demand.
