Summary
Paper presented at the Conference "Options for the Caribbean After the Global Financial Crisis", which was held in Bridgetown, Barbados on 27-28 January 2011 and was organized by the University of the West Indies, the Central Bank of Barbados, and the International Monetary Fund. This paper analyses the economic effects of discretionary fiscal policy (i.e. increases in government expenditures and tax cuts) in the Caribbean - Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. Using structural vector autoregressive and structural vector error correction models, the estimates show that government spending policies can stimulate the economy of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago but not of Barbados. Discretionary tax policies are found desirable in consolidating fiscal balances
