Price-level determination requires co-ordination of monetary and Öscal policy to ensure a unique rational expectations equilibrium (REE). This paper derives a number of implications for simple interest rate rules resulting from various Öscal strategies. We show that Öscal choices under either the monetary theory of the price-level (MTPL) and the Öscal theory of the price-level (FTPL) can challenge widely accepted principles of monetary policy. SpeciÖcally, we show that a Öscal rule that responds aggressively to output and ináation may force the monetary authorities to adopt signiÖcantly more aggressive output and ináation stabilization policy than suggested by the Taylor Principle. We also show how when monetary policy is severely constrained, the Öscal policy maker can act to stabilise the economy. Some policy conclusions in light of the lower zero bound for monetary policy and debt stabilization are drawn.
