As these variables are observable, any systematic policy response to these variables would be anticipated by wage setters. Furthermore, the real variables in the model are neutral to expected policy. A central bank which indeed has the ability to make a binding commitment to a policy rule is therefore best off by ignoring these shocks, thus keeping expected and actual inflation anchored at zero. DISCRETION AND NON-COOPERATION Suppose now, more realistically, that ex ante commitments are infeasible.

A devaluation shifts demand away from foreign goods, towards domestically produced goods. This increases employment and inflation at home, but has opposite effects abroad. With no coordination, these spillover effects are not internalized. Thus, both countries may have an incentive to engage in so called "competitive devaluations" to boost domestic employment, and their policy response to supply shock is also distorted. In the chapter we discuss how these incentive problems interact with lack of domestic credibility, and how to design monetary institutions accordingly.
