Since governments can choose only two of these three menu items at any one time, the Mundell-Fleming trilemma identi‹es the possibility of three different international monetary orientations. These three different international monetary orientations, or combinations of monetary policy choices, are concisely illustrated in ‹gure 1. At least in principle, governments could be at any of the three sides of the triangle; but at any given side, they lose the desirable economic condition at the opposite angle.
With steady economic growth, tax revenues boomed, allowing governments to reduce their budget de‹cits and retire public debt (see Gobbin and Van Aarle 2001), often without any substantial cuts in government spending. The lack of corresponding price pressures also meant that the Maastricht in›ation target became relatively easy to achieve, permitting nominal interest rates to fall in Europe, as in much of the rest of the global North. In fact, many advanced industrial democracies outside of Western Europe, including the United States, would have effectively satis‹ed the EMU ‹scal and monetary convergence criteria, although there was neither political pressure to do so nor any opportunity to join the new institution.
Andrews (1994b, 214) has persuasively concluded: “the dif‹culties in reversing the trend toward ‹nancial integration derive in part from this diversity of sources and in part from their collective interaction. ” Thus, at least for the advanced industrial democracies in the post–Bretton Woods era, the Mundell-Fleming trilemma can be reduced to a simpler dilemma. This dilemma concerns the trade-off between external currency stability and domestic monetary policy autonomy. Understanding this monetary policy trade-off in the post–Bretton Woods era brings us to the second research puzzle explored in this book.
