Abstract

In this study we estimate a Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model using Bayesian techniques to analyse the effects of monetary and fiscal policy in Morocco. The results suggest that a positive monetary policy shock generates a diminution of consumption, investment, output and inflation. A positive shock on government expenditures produces an increase in output and wage but generates also a decrease in private consumption and investment due to an increase in inflation and interest rate. Finally, a positive shock on capital tax produces a decrease in investment and thus in output. In general, the duration of monetary shock is shorter than fiscal shock; the first vanishes in about 10 quarters and the latter is more persistent and lasts more than 15 quarters.
