In reference to the recent economic downturns in the Western developed economies, the importance of balanced-budget rule in fiscal discipline is recalled the profession. But there is a concern among macroeconomists about the destabilizing nature of this fiscal rule. In this project, we aim to examine the interaction of specific market structures and tax policies that may constitute a potential destabilizing force unrelated to economic fundamentals. We investigate the mechanism through which indeterminacy, and hence endogenous economic fluctuations will or will not occur with different fiscal policies.
