The Great Inflation was the defining macroeconomic event of the second half of the twentieth century. Over the nearly two decades it lasted, the global monetary system established during World War II was abandoned, there were four economic recessions, two severe energy shortages, and the unprecedented peacetime implementation of wage and price controls. There are several factors that determine the quantity and quality of these effects, as reflected in fiscal multipliers, including monetary and exchange rate policy, openness of the economy, the form of fiscal adjustment (that is, government consumption, transfers, and taxes), and exogenous credibility effects that alter the risk of default.
Abstract: We develop a two-game tariff model (a pre-commitment game and a time-consistent game) to analyze the credibility of government's tariff reform announcements. We show that, in the absence of a pre-commitment mechanism, a government's ex-ante and ex-post optimal policy choices are different.

This paper addresses the problem of multiple equilibria in a model of time-consistent monetary policy. It suggests that this problem originates in the assumption that agents have rational expectations and proposes several alternative restrictions on expectations that allow the monetary authority to build credibility for a disinflationary policy by demonstrating that it will stick.

The time-inconsistency problem arises in the context of monetary policy, because there is a temptation to give a short-run boost to economic output and employment by pursuing a course of policy that is more expansionary than firms or workers had initially expected.
5 Nevertheless, if the economy is already at full employment, then this boost is. The time‐consistent discretionary solution reduces to a period‐by‐period optimization of the loss function, that is: 4 Minimizing then (4) subject to (1) gives the familiar monetary policy reaction functions for output and inflation, respectively: 5 6 Representation (6) is of a structural form in the sense that expectations are not.
In economics, dynamic inconsistency or time inconsistency is a situation in which a decision-maker's preferences change over time in such a way that a preference can become inconsistent at another point in time.
This can be thought of as there being many different "selves" within decision makers, with each "self" representing the decision-maker at a different point in time; the inconsistency. Parents, like governments, establish credibility by seeing to it that their “policies” (the rules that they outline for their children) are time consistent.

Abstract: Since the beginning ofthe United States has undertaken unprecedented tariff increases, with one goal of these actions being to boost the manufacturing sector.
In this paper, we estimate the effect of the tariffs—including retaliatory tariffs by U.S. trading partners—on manufacturing employment, output, and producer. Formerly, the monetary aggregates helped to assure that monetary policy was anchored to low inflation and was "time consistent," but these roles have not as yet been filled by other variables or changes in procedures.
Several proposals address these gaps in our practices, but our knowledge is insufficient to make a selection. “Expectations, Credibility, and Time-Consistent Monetary Policy,” Macroeconomic Dynamics, December “Interest Rates, Inflation, and Federal Reserve Policy Since ,” Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking, August “Does the Time-Consistency Problem Explain the Behavior of.
