We develop a model with endogenous default costs where market sentiment can induce belief-driven debt rollover crises. Optimal taxes and public spending are generally procyclical, but the incidence of rollover risk gives rise to infrequent episodes of severely countercyclical fiscal activity. These endogenous regime changes are associated with pronounced countercyclical changes in the level of debt. Debt buildups are triggered already by relatively mild recessions, but successful fiscal consolidations occur only in exceptionally good times.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2020-07</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Niemann, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Optimal fiscal policy and sovereign debt crises</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-05-08T07:15:38Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Pichler, Paul</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Niemann, Stefan</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Pichler, Paul</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-05-08T07:15:38Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
