Abstract

A well-known result from the analysis of the monetary policy coordination of two countries is that coordination of the two policies pareto-dominates the outcome of the non-cooperative game. Hence, both countries will always have an incentive to form a Union when it is ensured that the other country joins it as well. We show in a n-country (symmetric) framework that the two-country result cannot be extended straightforwardly.
